Hickstead local Georgia Tame secured victory on day one of the All England Jumping Championships

There was only one class held in the International Arena today, the All England 1.40m Open, with Hickstead resident Georgia Tame taking the honours.

Georgia held off the challenge from some of Hickstead’s recent champions, including Bunn Leisure Derby Tankard winner and Al Shira’aa Derby runner up Holly Smith in second place; British Speed Derby Champion Matthew Sampson in third and former Derby champion Phillip Miller in fourth place.  

Her victory came courtesy of Bolien, though she also had two other rides in the 91-strong class.

“Our game plan going into the jump off was to win, so to come out on top is brilliant,” said Georgia, who is based at Breen Equestrian.

She has had the 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood Bolien since he was seven. The pair are due to compete in tomorrow’s 1.40m then the All England Grand Prix on Sunday.

But she will not be having any major celebrations following her opening day win. “Tomorrow I am competing 10 horses so I will be celebrating by going to bed early and eating lots of chocolate!” she added.

One rider who had a day to remember was Mark Edwards, who won three classes. He not only took the 1.30m Open Warm Up class with Greenvale Cara, he also finished second with Harley H in the same class. With Eternal Evoloution he won the Connolly’s Red Mills Senior Newcomers Qualifier, and he also took the All England 6 & 7 Year Old Championship qualifier with Montreuxs Tale.

Will anyone better his record at this year’s All England Jumping Championships? Let’s wait and see!
