At Graham Heath Equestrian we’re keen to ensure the next generation of showjumpers have everything they need to hone their skills, which is why we’re proud sponsors of several young British riders. These include our very own Bobbie Heath, who rides for Great Britain, and her sister Maddie.
Recent Win for Bobbie
Bobbie recently stormed to victory in the Charles Britton Equestrian Construction Winter JA Classic Qualifiers at Addington Manor Equestrian Centre in Buckingham, on Saturday 28th January.
Bobbie and Antonia Platt forged ahead of their competitors to take a victory apiece after producing clear rounds. As part of a 50-strong starting field, each rider was vying for a sought after qualification spot for a championship, that will be held during the British Masters International Horse Show, also at SouthView Equestrian Centre (30th June – 2rd July 2017).
Bobbie used her final draw to full advantage and she battled 27 keen 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, to a fast and accurate treble clear in 43.17 seconds.
Full Results were as follows:
1st Bobbie Heath & Cisco Bay II – 0/0/0 – 43.17 seconds
2nd Sienna Charles & Magic Cornflakes – 0/0/0 – 43.73 seconds
3rd Perdita Digby & Kayleighs Star – 0/0/0 – 45.93 seconds
We’re extremely proud of both Bobbie and Maddie and can’t wait to see what else they’ll achieve in 2017!
