SWINDON teenager Tahnia Jordan-Jones completed a stunning Horse of the Year Show double when she won the Squibb Group Pony Foxhunter Championship.

Barely 48 hours after landing the Blue Chip Pony Newcomers class on 11-year-old grey gelding Jumper, the 15-year-old added Foxhunter success with the same pony in spectacular fashion.

It was the first time such a double has been achieved for 15 years, Jordan-Jones coming through after nine combinations had reached a jump-off and also narrowly missing out in the Leading Showjumper class after taking down the final fence.

“To do the double is insane,” she said.

“I didn’t think I was going to come here and win one of them, but to get placed in every single final and nearly win (the Leading Showjumper class) as well is amazing.

“The first turn in the jump-off was a hard one, and then another turn to an upright which was on quite an angle, so I knew I had to get those fences jumped before I could really go for the time, and God, did he jump.

“He is so special. He puts his all into everything, and this is definitely going to be a week to remember.

“A lot of practice has gone in, but to do that is amazing. At the end there, I was just pointing out what an amazing pony he is.

In the Newcomers Championship, the duo were the first to go and set a scorching pace that proved too much for the rest, their time of 41.05 seconds being almost four seconds quicker than the next best.

Jordan-Jones added: “We have got a really good relationship with each other.

“He (Jumper) is such a character, and I love him to bits, so I put all my trust in him and he just performs every time.

“Jumper is true to his name. He really can jump.

“We will just keep going and see what else we can add to our list.

“It would be great to get to the Europeans next year - that is our main aspiration.”
