Hertfordshire’s Georgina Burchmore-Eames Rides to Victory in British Showjumping 148cm Special Final at POYS

Hertfordshire’s Georgina Burchmore-Eames Rides to Victory in British Showjumping 148cm Special Final at Pony of the Year show, held at Bury Farm Equestrian Village.

All roads lead to Bury Farm Equestrian Village, Slapton, Buckinghamshire, last weekend where pony riders from the length and breadth of the country gathered for four fun-filled Easter days of the Pony of the Year Show.  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.

Georgina Burchmore-Eames, 15 years-old from Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire riding Ron Burgundy, a 10 year-old Chestnut Gelding owned by Jack Eames. This combination produced a consistent performance with two clear rounds, storming the jump off in just 32.10 seconds to take victory in the British Showjumping 148cm Special Final.

“He came out and won despite being tired after jumping the JA, he has a heart of gold and he always tries,” said Georgie, who also has Horse of the Year Show Foxhunter and Pony Showjumper of the Year hopes with this gelding.
