TALENTED dressage rider Amy Stovold from Horsham picked up two second places in the CDI grand prix classes in Compiegne, France at the beginning of the month

Riding her top horse MacBrian, who is owned by Julia Jacobs and Maggi Stovold and sponsored by Rowan, the partnership performed some of their best international grand prix scores yet – 69.59% in the grand prix and 70.02% for the special. In both classes Amy was second to fellow Brit Gareth Hughes.

Amy, 33, is on the British Equestrian Federation’s (BEF) UK Sport funded World Class Development Programme which works with talented riders to maximize their potential and deliver success.

She said: “I’m delighted with how well MacBrian performed. It was a really strong international field of 40, so to come second is fantastic.

“This was a great show for Britain as we secured five wins across the senior and young rider classes.”
