A horse who has had foot problems comes through to take a novice
Launceston (1), Cornwall
Georgina Ewell won “the only novice in Cornwall” on eight-year-old Kilcoltrim Jacko. The 21-year-old, who has just finished an equine science and business degree at the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester, added two cross-country time-faults to her dressage mark of 25.
“This is his first affiliated win – he has been on the verge of a good result for a while, but stupid errors on my part or green mistakes on his have meant it hasn’t happened,” said Georgina.
The Jack Of Diamonds 17.2hh gelding has occasional bouts of time off with foot problems, so this was a particularly pleasing success. Georgina hopes to step up to two-star and then intermediate level before the end of the season.
