Nantwich teenager Bobbie Heath stormed to victory at a classic equestrian qualifying event.

The 15-year-old triumphed in the second stage of the Charles Britton Equestrian Construction Winter JA Classic Qualifiers at Addington Manor.

Riders competed for a qualification spot at the prestigious Charles Britton Equestrian Construction Winter JA Classic Championship, held during the British Masters International Horse Show June 30 to July 2.

The Nantwich youngster stormed into first place in Saturday’s qualifier after using her final draw to full advantage.

She battled 27 combinations to become one of just six riders to make it through to the final jump off.

Holding her nerve, Bobbie rode 13-year-old bay gelding, Cisco Bay II, owned by Graham Heath to a fast and accurate treble clear in 43.17 seconds.

In second place was 14-year-old Sienna Charles from Alton, Hampshire who gave a slick treble clear performance on board Peter Charles’ nine-year-old bay gelding Magic Cornflakes.

This pair crossed the finish line in 43.73 seconds.

The next two Charles Britton Equestrian Construction Winter JA Classic Qualifiers will be held at Morris Equestrian Centre in Kilmarnock on February 11-12.

The remaining qualifier dates are Arena UK February 25 and 26, and Bury Farm Equestrian Village on March 11 and 12.
