Ngong Hills & Nicola Wilson win the OI at Somerford Park Horse Trials
Nicola, riding Ngong Hills (owned by Mrs Gilly Guthrie and Mrs Juliette Alers-Hankey) put up a superb performance to win an OI section at Somerford Park Horse Trials.
In a section containing horse and rider combinations who have been selected to represent their country at the upcoming European Eventing Championships at Blair Castle, Ngong Hills led from start to finish, posting a stunning dressage mark of 22.5, jumping a clear round show jumping before coming home clear and bang on the optimum time for the cross-country section.
In the other OI section, Kiltealy Brief (owned by Ramscove Ltd), was 11th, who was having his first run this season and therefore a quieter run cross-country, with Bulana (owned by Mr James Lambert OBE and Mrs Jo Lambert) jumping a lovely double clear to finish 12th.
