Nicola Wilson takes National Champion

Categories: None | Tags: None

Nicola Wilson has been crowned the British National Champion at the Festival of Eventing held at Gatcombe Park.

Nicola came third on her ride Beltane Queen in the British Open. As best of British rider she became National Champion. Unfortunately faults in the show jumping put Nicola in third place, however if she had gone clear they would have won the title.

Nicola said, ''She was phenomenal, she's just getting better and better, I can't believe it!'' Beltane Queen is an 11 year old coloured mare owned by Mrs Val Robson and Mrs Ann Robson. We are very excited about their future!

Nicola also finished ninth on Bulana jumping a brilliant double clear. Nicola was thrilled by the mares performance over such a technical show jumping track and tough cross-country course.

As well as the British National Champion Nicola is also the current Scottish Open Champion, having won that in 2014 riding One Two Many.
