Lincolnshire proved the perfect event for local rider, Alex Postolowsky, to continue her strong on form performances following on from her success at Oasby. Postolowsky showed her strong cross country skills running all 7 horses clear and within the time across the terrain which caused issues for many experienced partnerships. With a win in the Novice on Akolien, the rider went on to take two second places in the Open Novice and Intermediate Novice on Diddiman and Baroque Di Vi both finishing on their dressage scores.

It was third time lucky for Alice Hallows and Ottava Rima in their third run of the 2015 season campaigning for the Pony Trials. The pair had previously run at Isleham and Oasby and were lying in third after the dressage behind Xanthe Goldsack and Time for Fenella who were on a high after their win at Oasby the previous week. Hallows maintained her dressage score throughout the show jumping and cross country phases to take the win.

The decision to save Jesmond Justice for Lincolnshire proved the correct one for Leicestershire based Mark Kyle who dominated the Intermediate sections producing a fantastic win on the 10 year old gelding by Weston Justice. Richard and Shelagh Morley’s Jemilla also took a strong second place in the Open Intermediate.

The BE100 saw Willa Newton produce a fantastic performance on Erythronium scoring a 21.5 double clear on the 9 year old mare who also took the win at Oasby the previous week. Newton also took second place on Lauries Laudatio again finishing on their dressage score of 28.
