Suffolk Showjumper Chloe Winchester takes the Grand Prix at the Blue Chip Championships 2014

Dreams and ambitions were realised in the 23rd year of the Blue Chip Showjumping Winter Championships 2nd-6th April held at Hartpury Arena in Gloucestershire.

Ecstatic teenager Chloe Winchester, 19 from Suffolk, achieved her biggest victory at the Blue Chip Showjumping Winter Championships after taking the Blue Chip Grand Prix on her mother Gillian’s 11 year-old bay mare Avoca Valkyrie. In a classic ending, the pair took a flyer to the last in the final draw of the ten horse jump-off. “She’s so easy and always wants to please” she said. Nick Benterman (30) from Bedford took second with his own 10 year-old bay gelding Zorland D Volo ahead of Tina Fletcher (48) from Oxfordshire in third with Lady Harris and Lady Kirkham’s 13 year-old bay gelding Unique IX.

Chloe is sponsored by Equi-Trek and has recently been supplied with a brand new 3.5 tonne Sonic horsebox. In addition Chloe received a complimentary saddle from Bates, expertly fitted by Sophie Rodger of Express Equine. For more details visit or visit
