SIX-year-old Ella Latto from Hillsborough and her pony ‘Chaseford Camelia’ had a successful trip to the BSPS (British Show Pony Society) Winter Championship Show at Arena UK recently. They won the Novice Show Pony Lead Rein class and went on to be named overall Champion.
Ella started riding at the tender age of two and is a member of the BSPS and Iveagh Pony Club. She is ably assisted by her mum Andrea, who herself competed in Working Hunter and Showing – her last show being Dublin Horse Show before Ella came along. Andrea hopes to get back in the saddle to compete at the RDS again next year!
Ella’s ponies ‘Gryngallt Pizzicato’, ridden by Alex Hemsley and ‘Manorlea Calypso’, ridden by Abi Gardner, then competed in the First Ridden class at Balmoral Show last week, coming home with first and second places respectively – so it’s been a good season so far!
