A young amateur rider from High Peak is to realise her dream of competing at the prestigious Horse of The Year Show (HOYS).
Chloe Ribbon, 15, from Glossop, earned her coveted place in the final of the South Essex Insurance Brokers (SEIB) Search For A Star and the Racehorse To Riding Horse Championships at the recent qualifying event held at Onley Grounds Equestrian Complex, near Rugby.
Chloe took top spot in the Show Hunters class on her own 17hh Vantage Point. A good entry of 17 came before the judges in the hunter class and the nine-year-old bay gelding, whose stable name is Hector, was pulled in first.
“It has always been my dream to get to HOYS, but I never thought I would actually get there,” said a delighted Chloe, who is studying for her GCSEs at St Philip Howard School.
