Borde Hill Horse Trials (2) 2020

Words & Photos by Julian Portch

Borde Hill never fails but to enchant those lucky enough to be there and always provides great sport. This year the organisers ran BE80(T), BE90 and BE100 tracks and was solid with competitors on both days. The weather was kind to us, with just two short showers. The BE80 Regional Final was hard fought for, with Heidi Couch on WESTCOMBE JAKE, taking the top spot and also a brand new Point Two Pro Air Jacket, sponsored by NagMag.

 

Another interesting battle to watch was Mother and Daughter, Tina and Isabelle Cook, who were first and second respectively in BE100 Section I. Both had a double clear, but Tina was 0.2 ahead after their dressage tests and held on to her win.
