The pair were also 2nd in the lead rein class at the same show. Gavina and Lara have had a good season, winning the lead rein at B.S.P.S area 7 and a Reserve championships at Cullinghood with further success at Hall Place, Abingdon, Swallowfield and others. Gavina is only 6 years old and has been riding Lara since she was two and a half. She was thrilled to receive the 5th highest ride mark this year in her first HOYS qualifier.
Gavina will receive a prize from this month’s sponsors, Harry Hall and Tottie Clothing. She is just one of the riders who submitted a photo for our online feature – other riders in the ribbons are featured below and in our printed magazine.
