It was three wins, on three different horses and three in the arena for Lara Edwards at the Keysoe British Dressage High Profile Show.
At 20 weeks pregnant Lara stormed to victory in the Prelim, Inter 1 and Small Tour Championship to end 2017 on a high.
Winning the Prelim with home-bred, Chanel, saw Lara’s own breeding programme return its first success. This is something that is particularly satisfying for Lara as she has put so much energy into breeding top quality foals, using her own stallions, with Chanel demonstrating the fantastic movement of her sire,Cadans M.
This was to be the last time Lara rode Chanel who went straight off to her delighted new owners to further her career.
Bodyguard came out on top in the Inter 1 and Jazzed Up (Felix), who Lara jointly owns with Tracy and Laura Milner, was victorious in the Small Tour Championship where he gained his international score for next year.
This was Lara’s last time out competing before the birth of her second baby next year, the results leaving her with lots to look forward to.
Lara, who is a brand ambassador for the Lifeforce Range from Alltech said of her success: “I am thrilled to exceed the goals that I set myself at the beginning of the year. To win three classes at such a high profile show is a massive achievement.
“To produce all three horses myself from scratch with the help of my trainer, Rhett Bird, really puts the wins on another level. From birth to going out competing is a long road but days like today make it all worthwhile.”
The Lifeforce Range of all-natural, daily digestive aid supplements from Alltech are designed to benefit horses of every stage of life, from breeding stock to pleasure and performance animals.
