YOUNG Pilning-based rider Georgia Taylor-Jones won a showjumping championship class at Hickstead’s Longines Royal International Horse Show.

The 13-year-old triumphed in the Winter 138cm Championships in the International arena, riding Joanne Taylor-Jones’ Errigal Blaze.

The junior secured the win in impressive style with a double clear, recording the fastest final round.

As one of the biggest outdoor shows in the country, the Longines Royal International Horse Show in West Sussex uniquely sees equestrian’s elite from a variety of disciplines compete side by side: it has everything from the thrills and spills of international showjumping to the elegance and glamour of champion showing horses and ponies, to the exhilarating buzz of the country's best scurry ponies.

The six=day horse show is one of the oldest and most prestigious competitions in the calendar, and also hosts a leg of the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup Series, providing the British public their only chance to see their national showjumping team compete on home ground.
