HOYS17: Equissage Pulse Ridden Partbred Pony of the Year Championship

The Price family’s superstar pony – and reigning Supreme Pony of the Year – Litton Enterprise has made a stylish comeback to the TopSpec Arena on the first day of Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) with a win in the Equissage Pulse Ridden Partbred Pony of the Year Championship.

Ridden by Phoebe Price, and owned by Bury St Ednuds-based Joanne and Darren Price, the 11-year-old British Riding Pony was making his debut appearance in this Partbred class, with previous wins and placings in the Kathleen Wood Children’s Riding Pony of the Year.

Phoebe said: “It’s amazing, I’m in shock! We just came to enjoy it this year so anything would have been a bonus – let alone this win!” Litton Enterprise is produced by Julie Templeton who was: “Really pleased with their individual show.”

They will now contest the Kathleen Wood 148cm Children’s Riding Pony of the Year on Saturday before the Supreme on Sunday. “He’ll then come home for the winter to chill in the field,” explained Phoebe.

It’s been a busy and successful year for the pair, collecting numerous wins on the circuit and the Reserve Supreme title at the Royal International. “They’re the combination of a lifetime,” said Darren.
