LYDIA MAY BLAKE
LYDIA MAY BLAKE, 14, claimed the under-18 novice on her 16-year-old Appaloosa pony Spot The Spot II.
“I was so excited but nervous doing my test as it’s one of the biggest things I’ve done on ‘Ghost’,” said Lydia May. “I worked hard with my trainer, Jo Lees, to get to these finals and, when I found out I had won, I was beyond excited. I hugged Ghost so much that I am sure he knew we had won.
“In the prizegiving he stood looking so proud of himself — I can’t wait for the winter championships next April.”
Lydia May was featured in H&H back in March as an under-25 rider to watch.
