New McCoy blooded

The Racing Paper - - Trends And Diary -

ELEVEN-year-old Eve McCoy proved an in­stant hit at the Liver­pool In­ter­na­tional Horse Show at the end of 2018.

Spec­ta­tors were on the edge of their seats as she shot round the arena at break­neck speed on her way to a blis­ter­ing clear round on her grey pony.

Her par­ents Sir An­thony and Chanelle McCoy were in Liver­pool to sup­port Eve as she fin­ished sixth in a pairs show jump­ing class with se­nior rider Tony Pear­son.

Chanelle re­flected: “We planned Christ­mas around the show. It is a great ex­pe­ri­ence for the kids to feel the pres­sure of the big day when they are young and it pre­pares you for later in life.”
