CROPTHORNE and Evesham Vale finished a highly-successful year by winning the 100cm Eventer Challenge at Blenheim Horse Trials.

The team consisting of Tracey Paxton and Kiwi, Ross Paxton and Majik, Verity Roberts and Pia and Yvonne Goss and Jaffa was the only team from a field of 38 to finish on a zero score.

It follows on from Fiona Organ, Verity Roberts, Georgie Roberts and Abbi Stock winning the 80 Eventer Challenge at the Festival of the Horse and Aston Le Walls in June.

That triumph was backed up by Verity Roberts, Georgie Roberts and Katherine Worrall winning the 80 Showjumping at the Southwales and West of England Showjumping, an event held at Hartpury, last month.

At the Riding club Championships at Lincoln, Megan Smith was the individual winner of the Junior 80 riding Boo.
