Equestrian - Stella in fine form
3:10pm Friday 26th October 2012 in Sport
WELLAND rider Stella Baylis has enjoyed a stunning season of eventing.
Her horse Hartpury Top Gun secured second spot behind a four-star rider in the British Eventing top 20 foundation points, scoring 131.
Baylis, also a coach who teaches at Ledbury Hunt Pony Club, finished 13th in the riders’ league table and another horse Hartpury Take It 2 The Top was joint 17th.
Eventing covers the disciplines of dressage, cross-country and show jumping.
The 43-year-old admitted: “Most event riders are thrilled with a top 10 place but my horses have been so good this year that if they were not in the top three it was a bad day. Eventing is such a tough sport as both horse and human have to be on top form in all three phases and we have had the weather conditions to contend with too.”
She added: “I train them at home in all weathers so my horses think dressage and jumping in horizontal rain is perfectly normal!”
