Essex’s Rosie Collins claims top spot in The Stable Company HOYS 138cms Qualifier at The College Equestrian Centre, Keysoe

The Stable Company HOYS 138cms Qualifier took place at The College Equestrian Centre in Keysoe, Bedford recently and it was Rosie Collins who topped the leader board. 


Forty young riders came forward to contest for one of the three places on offer for The Stable Company HOYS 138cms Championship Final held at the prestigious Horse of the Year Show in October. The first two rounds whittled competitor numbers down until just five keen combinations were left to do battle against the clock in the final jump off. 

Over the jump off course, Rosie Collins from Rayleigh, Essex delivered a lightning fast round on board Thyme Flies, a 15-year-old bay gelding owned by Anastasia Snook. This pair picked up the pace by taking a fast line in 44.73 seconds and were unfortunate to have pole midway through the course for 4 faults.  

Claudia Moore, aged 12, travelled from Brentwood, Essex with My Bugsy Malone, a 25-year-old black gelding owned by Katrina Moore. This pair had two fences down towards the start of the course and went on to cross the finish line in 58.72 seconds with 8 faults and a single time penalty.

Taking third place was 12-year-old Jake Myers riding Joanna Myers’ 24-year-old grey gelding, The Agent. This combination stopped the clock in 61.19 seconds with 8 faults and 4 time penalties.
