Scottish teenager Shaunie Greig underlined why she is among British showjumping’s most exciting prospects by producing a stunning performance at the Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show.
Shaunie, from Dunfermline in Fife, won the 148cms Pony Grand Prix, sponsored by Carden Arms, and no-one could doubt her supremacy.
Five combinations made it through to the jump-off in Bolesworth’s International Arena, with Shaunie being joined by Nicole Lockhead-Anderson, Faye Sutton and two rides for Claudia Moore.
Nicole and Gangnam Style II set the pace with an impressive round in 37.17 seconds, but Shaunie moved into top gear immediately aboard Casino Royale VIII, making some remarkable turns to clock 33.56 seconds.
Claudia finished in third and fourth places, respectively, with Elando van de Roshoeve and Shamrock du Gite.
A delighted Shaunie said: “It is such a lovely venue here, and I feel lucky to be able to ride here.
“He is an amazing pony that always tries his best, and I knew the jump-off course today would suit him.”
