Equilibrium's own Sophie Moultrie WINS The Equilibrium Products BE100 Eventer Challenge at Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials
Our own Sophie Moultrie rode two stunning clear rounds at the Equilibrium Products BE100 Eventer Challenge on her own Zachary III and was the closest rider to the optimum time in both the first round and the jump off.
The Eventer Challenge takes place on the Sunday at the Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials in the Bladon Arena and showcases some of the best grassroots riders. To qualify, horse and rider combinations must have gained 6 BE foundation points at qualifying events over the season.
The competition itself is a ‘Derby Style’ Competition in a grass-arena involving a testing course of 1m-1.05m show jumps and cross country fences with a 1.10m Tri-Zone Show-jump fence to finish.This Tri-zone 1.10m Joker show-jump fence really tests the horse and rider as it comes straight after the cross country fences and incurs the rider 6 penalties.The optimum time for the course is 375m/minute and the highest placed combinations will be the ones with a clear round and closest to this time.
Sophie graduated from Hartpury College and has since worked part time for Equilibrium whilst also competing her two horses, Zachary III (Zach) and Feels Like Gold (Faible) up to CIC* level.
Zach, a 10 year old who Sophie has owned since he was 2, put in a beautiful clear round in near perfect time last Sunday to win the Equilibrium Products BE100 Eventer Challenge and had her prizes presented by our sponsored rider Sam Griffiths, Australian rider and this years Badminton winner.
Sophie was exceptionally pleased with her win particularly as three years ago she did not complete the Eventer Challenge due to a run out at one of the XC fences which triggered a brief time away from Eventing for Zach.
Zach started his eventing career in 2011 with Sophie but she felt he needed time to mature so was given two years off to pursue a show-jumping career with her and has since returned to Eventing feeling much more mature gaining wins at BE100 level this year at Moreton Morrell and Shelford Manor and a second at Hambledon International.
We hope Sophie’s winning streak continues this weekend when she takes her other ride – Feels Like Gold – to the CIC* at Gatcombe International. Good luck and Well Done!
