Skewbalds and piebalds of all shapes and sizes

The opening day of the Longines Royal International Horse Show saw what is thought to be the largest gathering of coloured horses and ponies anywhere in the world, with skewbalds and piebalds as far as the eye could see!

Entries were full to bursting in the Howden Insurance Brokers Ltd Skewbald and Piebald horse and pony classes, with the judging starting at 8am and having only just reached its conclusion. 

The overall supreme winner came from the skewbald and piebald ridden pony championship, with the coveted sash going to Login Lucky Lad, who certainly lived up to his name. The 10-year-old was ridden by Michaela Wood.

In overall reserve was the ridden horse champion, Shear Impulse, ridden by Leon King.  

Showjumping classes were equally busy, with an incredible 161 starters in the Gray Horsebox Manufacturers 1.00m Open. Hickstead regular Charlotte Uden took the spoils, riding her own Valdi Vee. 

In the Hickstead 1.30m Open it was Andrew Davies and Elektrik II who took the top prize, while the Equitop Myoplast Novice Stakes saw Megan Phillips and Banderas riding out as the winners.
