The champagne was flowing yesterday at the 2017 CDI at Hickstead after Collective Equestrian’s very own rider and trainer Alex Harrison and his ride Ruben VI scored a hatrick, winning all three young rider classes with his best score being an impressive 74.48% in the Kur to music!
Meanwhile Jonny Clarke West scored a respectable 69.2% to be placed eighth in a competitive PSG class on Zick Zack Toftegaard.
Elizabeth Allen had a fantastic first run at an international competition, not only was it her first international, she went straight in at Grand Prix.
Jonny Clarke West commented: “I am chuffed to bits to have all three riders from Collective Equestrian at the Hickstead CDI. Not only that but Elizabeth made her international U25 Grand Prix Debut while I took Zick Zack Toftegaard to make his small tour debut with top 10 placings. Star of the show was of course Alex Harrison with Ruben winning all of the young rider classes – and 74% in the freestyle!”
