Feeling on top form after winning at the British Showjumping National Championships, Lauren Edwards flew to victory with Andrew Doswell’s 10-year-old Ella Sandra G. Lauren was first to go in the National 1.30m Championship jump off – however used the draw to her advantage: “I prefer to go first with her because I can do my own thing and am not tempted to take a risk,” she said. “I just did what I wanted to do, and was sensible, and jumped clear.”

None of the other eight jump-off contenders could catch Lauren, and only three of the sixty four starters jumped double clear.

“I’m quite confident in her as she’s naturally fast,” Lauren said. “The turns suited her and I knew I could trust her on the long gallop to the last.”

Liberty Bramwell and Balibu take second place, with Kimberly White and Hippo B taking third.
