William Funnell won a whopping â‚¬50,000 ( £39,660) on Sunday at the Donbass Equicentre in Donetsk, Ukraine.
Riding Billy Congo, William won the CSI***** W grand prix on the final day of the Donbass Tour (31 August-2 September).
He was clear over both rounds, posting 41.19sec in the jump-off.
This put him ahead of second placed Max Kuhner, of Germany, on Coeur De Lion in 41.5sec; Australia’s Edwina Tops Alexander and Guccio with 42.16 and Robert Smith and Voila, fourth in 42.41sec.
Wiliam had also scored a number of places over the initial two days with Billy Congo and Dorada so finished as leading rider, adding an extra â‚¬10,000 to his prize pot.
“It was the first time I had been to this show and I was really impressed,” William told H&H.
“They flew the horses out – it was the first time ‘Congo’ had flown, but it was much easier than driving all that way – and looked after us very well. It was a five-star show.
“It is very nice to win a five-star grand prix. I am very pleased with Congo – he’s had a good year.”
