A Resounding Success For NPS/TopSpec Dressage Championships

The 2011 NPS/TopSpec Supreme Dressage Championships held at Addington Manor Equestrian Centre was once again a huge success.

Qualifying rounds ran throughout the winter months with the best combinations going through to the TopSpec supported Championships where many top class performances were in evidence throughout a very busy day.

The NPS/TopSpec Supreme Championship went to young Olivia Hoyland and the 11.2hh Welsh Section A, Sunwillow Gundegai.

Owned by Caroline Bell from Farndon in Oxfordshire, Ollie as he is known at home, was ridden until last year by her daughter Rebecca with Olivia taking over the ride this year with much success.

Said Caroline: “Ollie and Olivia have quickly developed a great partnership. Winning the NPS/TopSpec Supreme Dressage Championships was brilliant and everyone was thrilled.

“We have loaned Ollie to Olivia and are so pleased with their progress together.”

Choosing the music Cat Scratch Fever, Olivia and Ollie wowed the judges with their brilliant performance.

Added Caroline: “During the day I was busy helping at another event but when Olivia made it through to the finals I couldn’t wait to get to Addington.

“The win has certainly sealed their partnership and we couldn’t ask for a better rider for Ollie.”
