Future Stars Shine in EquestrianClearance.com BE80(T)
The EquestrianClearance.com BE80(T) series at Carlton, Bedfordshire, saw Clare-Louise Bond and youngster Mimo Sandford take the honours in the two sections. Norfolk based rider Clare-Louise Bond and the eight-year-old gelding Rock Revelation took the first section with a final score of 37.80.
The pair finished the dressage phase in third place but climbed the leader board after adding just 2.8 time faults in the cross-country round, as riders struggled to make it round the course in the time allowed. In the second BE80(T) section it was young star, 13-year-old Mimo Sandford from Maidenhead who finished ahead of the field.
A member of the Old Berkley Hunt South Pony Club, Mimo and her pony Winton Ragged Robin have only been together for the last nine months and were taking part in their first British Eventing competition. Eight-year-old Robin, as he is known at home, was third coming out of the dressage phase and with just a pole down in the showjumping to add, the pair finished on a score of 33. Said Mimo: “I am over the moon to win, at just 13 years of age I was competing against adults on horses.
"Robin went extremely well for our first BE competition, I would like to make a career in eventing, so this is a really good start.”
