WINSHAM rider Billie-Ann Warren and her horse Moses finished an excellent seventh in a novice class at the Pontispool Horse Trials last Monday.

Their opposition included top names including Zara Phillips, Paul Tapner and Nick Gauntlett.

The class also included a Retraining of Racehorse section for which she claimed first prize.

Warren, who is 21, scored a reasonable 37 on the dressage which put her in mid-division.

On the showjumping course she rolled an unlucky pole to go to the cross country on a score of 41.

Then the ten-year-old Moses – show name Siberian High – gave her a great ride to jump a superb clear round, just clocking up a few time penalties to finish on 48.6.

Warren, who and works for young National Hunt trainer Harry Fry just outside Crewkerne, said: “I am over the moon to have finished seventh out of a very tough section.”

The partnership now head for the Nunney International on June 14, the Chepstow Horse Trials on June 28 and then to the Barbury Castle International on July 4.
