Essex’s Kallum Fletcher Wins the Children on Horses Grand Prix Title at Bury Farm Equestrian Village

Last weekend pony riders from the length and breadth of the country gathered for four fun-filled Easter days of the Pony of the Year Show held at Bury Farm Equestrian Village, Slapton, Buckinghamshire.  

This year the show carried a Jungle Book theme with monkeys and gorillas amongst the animals to become part of the wings and fences for a great jungle feel – although the weather didn’t feel able to join in, unless you count rain to complete the Rain Forest ambiance.

Kallum Fletcher, 15 years-old from Rayleigh, Essex, on board Disco III a 10-year-old grey gelding owned by Natasha Hawkins produced smooth turns and forward-going strides to earn the Children-on-Horses Grand Prix title. The combination produced two clears, with a lightening round in the jump off, coming home in just 42.87 seconds.

“He’s on form, I thought we were in with a chance,” said Essex-based Kallum.
