Podium finish for Balham Mist at Gatcombe
7 August, 2017
A fantastic weekend at Gatcombe saw Ludwig and Andrew Ayres’s Balham Mist finish on the Event Rider Masters podium in 2nd, and thereby becoming the British Open reserve champion.
“Misty” got off to a great start with a 48.6 dressage, a new personal best at this level. A particularly tough show jumping followed, where Ludwig and Misty were one of only three combinations in the field to jump clear inside the time allowed. One of the fastest clears across the country placed them in eventual second.
Apart from the glory of this fantastic result, Ludwig also won the Land Rover trophy for best placed overseas rider and Balham Mist won the Worshipful Company of Saddler’s award for youngest horse placed in the top 10 in the Open Championships.
