CHESHIRE rider Harry In­gram and his horse; Chayze, scooped a cov­eted prize at the King’s For­est, Suf­folk En­durance In­ter­na­tion­als ear­lier this month.

Harry won the chal­leng­ing 120km dis­tance class CEI2 rid­ing ‘War­rens Hill Chayze’ with an av­er­age speed of 18km/h and time of 6hrs, 39mins, 24 sec­onds.

“This was a tough ride against in­ter­na­tional com­peti­tors,” said Harry.

“Chayze cov­ered the ground well, bowl­ing along at can­ter with his ears pricked and fo­cused.

“It was a very warm day but we kept a con­stant pace and we had done enough train­ing to pre­pare for the event.

“The vets were pleased with how my horse coped and were happy to pass him ‘fit’ at the end of the ride. Aged seven, this is the first ‘com­pet­i­tive’ sea­son for Chayze, an An­glo Arab geld­ing, and I was very pleased with how he coped and re­cov­ered fol­low­ing the ride.”

Harry, aged 23 from Goost­rey in Cheshire, has been com­pet­ing in the sport of En­durance rid­ing since he was a teenager and suc­cess­fully com­peted in the Young Riders cat­e­gory.
