Rider Hannah Vincent has just returned from a hugely successful weekend in Gloucester.

Hannah, 14, from Bunwell was the only one from Norfolk to compete for the coveted Junior British Show Jumping Association affiliated Blue Chip Winter Championships at the Hartpury Arena.

Hannah was placed fourth in the warm-up class on Saturday out of a huge class of 119 on Ashfield Bobby Rose.

In the big class of the day run over three rounds, over 90 competitors were eager to win the coveted Junior Blue Chip Winter Championships.

Hannah was drawn first to go in the final jump-off and set the standard that held her in first place until the very end when she was beaten by less than a second into second place.

Sunday brought her the first place that she was determined to get with a win on her second ride My Thai in the PRB Horsebox Winter Championships - and she also secured seventh place in the same class with Ashfield Bobby Rose out of nearly 60 riders.

Hannah is sponsored by Paul Hammond of Diss Windows and Conservatories (DWC).
