British Showjumping 128 138 Handicap Special Tabitha Kyle Caher Silver 2 750x440 - British Showjumping Winter Pony Championships

British Showjumping 128 138 Handicap Special Tabitha Kyle Caher Silver 2 150x100 - British Showjumping Winter Pony ChampionshipsAn enjoyable two days under the SouthView Equestrian Centre team made for a successful British Showjumping Winter Pony Championships at the popular Cheshire venue.

Tabitha Kyle, 12 from Loughborough, Leicestershire has been on top form all winter with a record-breaking number of wins over the national small pony winter premier series and this show was no different as she claimed a convincing victory hat-trick. 

Tabitha got off to a flying start with a win in the British Showjumping 128/138cm handicap special final and headed the concluding 128cm and 138cm grand prix titles.

She secured the 128/138cm special with 2.72 seconds to spare in a 10-pony jump-off with Emma Young’s Caher Silver (pictured, photo courtesy of British Showjumping), a 12-year-old she has ridden for just two months.

“He rides beautifully and he’s careful with a big stride,” said Tabitha.

Tabitha also proved unbeatable in the 128cm grand prix, using her final draw to secure the title with more than five seconds in hand on the 9-year-old Borderhill William in a four-pony jump-off.  

And she added the 138cm grand prix to her tally, underscoring her talent with first, second and fourth places aboard the 15-year-old Lissduff Royal and the 8-year-olds Mister Proper and Playboy Van De Zoetewei in an exciting seven-pony decider.
