A young rider from the West Country triumphed in the Hickstead Derby Trophy, with the title going to Sammie Jo Coffin and Willem De Lux.

“I really didn’t expect to win, I just wanted to jump around and have a nice time,” said Sammie Jo. “I was just happy to go in the main ring as I’ve never been in it before. This is my first international show, and the atmosphere is amazing. ‘Will’ loved it, he really grew as soon as we rode in.”

 Sammie Jo was delighted to finish ahead of Olympian Nick Skelton and the talented Big Star, who netted a steady double clear to go fourth.
