Nicola Wilson finishes best of the Brits at Pau CCI4*
Nicola Wilson finished her 2016 eventing season in style by being the highest placed British rider at the CCI**** Pau International Horse Trials, where riding One Two Many (owned by Mr Gerry Kemp, Mrs Mary Kemp and Mrs Janine Shewan) Nicola finished in 4th place and with Annie Clover (owned by her parents Barry & Mary Tweddle) she finished in 8th place.
One Two Many produced a superb dressage test to lie in 3rd place, while Annie Clover, who unfortunately on her toes in this phase was further down the field, however, the little mare showed true class in the cross-country phase by jumping clear with only 2 time penalties. One Two Many powered his way over the Pierre Michelet cross country course and showed he was no slouch either by coming home with just 2.8 time penalties, leaving them 12th and 3rd respectively going into the show jumping phase.
Annie Clover showed a clean pair of heels to jump a superb clear round that finally moved her up to 8th position, while One Two Many moved down one place to finish in 4th place – his best result to date at CCI**** level.
"I am absolutely thrilled with both my horses said Nicola, it has been a superb week of competition and what a great finish to the 2016 season",
"A massive thank you to all my owners, sponsors, the girls on the yard and everyone who makes up Team Wilson".
French rider Maxime Livio claimed the victory, his first CCI4* win.
We would like to wish all those that took part a very well done, but especially huge congratulations to Nicola for not one, but two top 10 results!!!
