Our producers at The Lakes Free Range Egg Co were delighted to continue our sponsorship of the Cumbria Horse Trial Events and were particularly pleased to welcome Sophie Johnson and her lovely horse Ernst to the area for the Novice Regional Final at Warwick Hall on 17th June.
Sophie is a close friend of our Sales Director, Bex and travelled with her mum all the way from Nottinghamshire to take part. Sophie took on the ride of Ernst at the end of 2016. At the time he had a reputation for hating ditches, water and anything scary! Through hard work and a different approach Sophie and Ernst are building a bond and earlier this season Sophie took him to Chatsworth where they finished 8th.
The event here at Warwick Hall represented a big step up for Ernst with an Intermediate dressage test, 1.25m show jumping and a very bold XC track to contend with. We are pleased to say he dug deep and jumped his heart out for Sophie with a brilliant double clear to finish 12th in very strong company. Well done Sophie and Ernst and we look forward to welcoming you back here in Cumbria again.
