Ronnie Lee Jones riding Kaleche takes home the title for the Prestige Italia Big Star Championship, this was the ultimate test for the country’s best six-year-olds who had to face two rounds at 1.30m to qualify for the jump off. With 29 starters ready to take on the challenging course, 20 secured their place in the first jump off, with 9 through to the final jump off. Incredibly, 6 riders secured a triple clear with Ronnie and Kaleche coming out on top with a finishing time of 45.79 seconds.

After a highly professional ride, Ronnie admitted “Her [Kaleche] first round wasn’t her best, she was a bit spooky.. I wasn’t sure how it would pan out, but she’s been really good this year and won HOYS qualifiers and Windsor’s 6-year-olds, she’s been so reliable!”.

Another show stopping performance from Ronnie Lee Jones and Key West RSH, which also secured him second place, followed by Lucy Townley and Billy Pollard in third.
