Local rider Wendy Dunham galloped to victory on her horse Cruise at yesterday’s Eventer Trial at the Newton Cross Country Course near Nottingham.
Clear rounds in the show jumping and cross country in a field of 35 competitors secured top spot for Wendy for the first time on Cruise.
She said: “Cruise was not his usual ‘zingy’ self at first because of the heat but soon stepped up a gear.
“I am so pleased. I feel fantastic with the result.”
Wendy’s next outing is the Hackthorn One day event on Sunday.
