Eques­trian

Young eques­trian rider Fred­die Jef­fer­son-Pil­lai pro­duced an out­stand­ing per­for­mance in the Land Rover Re­gional Pony Club Grass­roots Event­ing Cham­pi­onships in Bed­ford over the week­end. The 13-year-old from Wood­church and his mount Baby Cakes en­joyed a re­ward­ing day at the Col­lege Eques­trian Cen­tre, Keysoe, fin­ish­ing fourth in the event which com­prised dres­sage, showjump­ing and cross­coun­try. The part­ner­ship rode im­pres­sive clear rounds in both show-jump­ing and cross­coun­try and picked up a score of 32 in the dres­sage – no mean feat given the pair have been to­gether less than a year. Fred­die, who at­tends Ash­ford School, said: “It was bril­liant. I loved ev­ery mo­ment but I was prob­a­bly most ner­vous about the dres­sage phase as I was the first com­peti­tor to ride. “I knew we had rid­den a good test but you never know how the other com­peti­tors are do­ing so you just have to do your best and hope you’ve done enough. “Luck­ily for me, Maisie (as Baby Cakes is af­fec­tion­ately known at home) was foot per­fect all day and gave me a great ride.” Fred­die and Baby Cakes – who stands 14.1 hands high – have built up a great part­ner­ship in their year to­gether and com­pete for Ash­ford Val­ley Pony Club where Fred­die has been a mem­ber since the age of six. He reg­u­larly com­petes for his club in other eques­trian dis­ci­plines along with sis­ters Olivia (15) and Ruby (10). Older brother Zak (17) does not ride com­pet­i­tively but is also never far away sup­port­ing. The fi­nals at Keysoe at­tracted 160 com­peti­tors, rep­re­sent­ing four dif­fer­ent ar­eas and the stan­dard was con­sis­tently high with all the rid­ers hav­ing had to progress from qual­i­fiers. Fred­die came through the Area 11 pony club One Day Event at Bon­fleur near Maid­stone in June.
