Millie lives up to the Challenge

A sole clear by Millie Dickinson saw her crowned the winner of the Douglas Bunn 1.35m Memorial Challenge today at Hickstead.


Today’s Douglas Bunn 1.35m Memorial Challenge was won by Millie Dickinson, who secured the only clear round of the day to take the title on board Cairo Z II.

Her time of 99.55sec was good enough to win, ahead of Grant Talbot and Elinor Fleming in second and third respectively, with both riders picking up a time fault.

“My tactics were simple – I just wanted to go clear and fast enough not to get a time fault,” said Millie, who comes from Hertfordshire.

Cairo Z II was formerly ridden by Elliott Reeves, who has been working as Jumping Secretary all season at Hickstead.

“‘King’ loves it here at Hickstead, he always has even when Elliott rode him. He just pings over the fences with such ease,” said Millie. “He is going to be spoilt with lots of carrots and will spend a few days in the field!”

Guildford-based Florence Bellm took today’s All England 1.20m Amateur Championship riding Southbound.

“I have had Southbound for eight years now and have been trying to win a Hickstead rug for five years. To finally achieve it feels amazing.”

Florence also took runner up spot in the All England 1.10m Amateur Championship with her other ride Chipie B F Z, behind eventual winners Kerstin Deakin and Sunsolde.
