I just had Ceylor LAN up at Burghley doing the BYEH 5year old final. He was an absolute star and coped with the atmosphere of the buzzy arena remarkably well. He did a nice test and scored well in this section. He then jumped beautifully round the show jumping and cross country track which is marked on style and performance and gained the best jumping mark of the day, 38 out of 40. Next we went of to the conformation section where he again scored well. All these scores put together were good enough to put us top of the pile and easily through to the final section which invites only the top ten back in.
Watch our dressage and jumping performance here:
The final section is judged on suitability and star quality and also includes a gallop. Again Ceylor LAN performed very well and was pulled in second in this section. All his marks were then added up together and he came out as the easy winner!! He won by four marks which was an amazing achievement. I am very lucky to have some wonderful young horses at the moment and now currently have in my yard the reining Seven Year Old World Champion, the reining Six Year Old National Champion and now the Burghley Young Event Horse Five Year Old Champion!!
