Prize ride for Harry on Chayze
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.
