Today is the second day of the Young Horses jumping and three riders really stood out.

On the 2nd day of the 4th Week of the Sunshine Tour XXVI, there were some surprising results

The 28yr old British rider, Emma Stoker was the star of the 7yr old class beating off more than 65 competitors from the two sections. In Section A, she was the winner with “Q Seven”, second was the Spanish rider Álvaro González de Zárate with “I Mose Vls” and third was Helmut Schönstetter with his own Holsteiner “Zaccorado Blue”.

Emma told us; “I have been riding Q Seven since he was a 4yr old, he is very consistent and a winner. Over these weeks here at the Sunshine Tour he has been placed various times. ” Pulling off the hat-trick she also was the winner of Section B, this time with “Newberry Balia NL” “she is my new mare, she is by“Emerald”. I have six horses here that are by “Emerald”!” last year Axel Verloy bought practically all of Emma's competition horses and she had to rebuild her string. “I am happy that Axel bought all the horses from my previous owner. I still have two here from that string but the rest are all new. I am really proud to be here representing Eurohorse with 10 horses. This is our last week, next week we head home for a rest period with our sights set on the Lanaken Z Tour”

To complete the results, Nicolás Toro with “Ilyon ES” was second and Ellen Whitaker with “Ecaterina” took a well deserved third place in Section B.


The other protagonist in today’s competition was the 32yr old Polish rider, Natalia Czernik. She also got the hat-trick but this time in the 5yr old Sections. One win was with “Casamba”in Section A and in Section B with“Venecia Red Wine”.

“Casamba” is a stallion that we use to cover mares. He is very easy to ride and he loves the really big arenas here at Sunshine Tour. He has improved a lot over the time we have spent here at Montenmedio. “Venezia”, who won Section B, is my new mare and these have been the first competitions that we have done together. I am delighted to have won because they are both only just at the beginning of their training. “Venezia” is the half sister of the famous “Casquell” ridden by Edwina Tops. I am happy here, in the perfect place to prepare the young horses for the rest of the season.”


Natalia is also part of the Polish National Team and she is keenly preparing hoping to compete in the Nations Cup. She also manages her own stable with her partner; “our estate “Verso la Natura” is located in northern Poland near the border with Germany. There we prepare and sell horses. We also breed with our stallions and this year I plan to open our own stud. ”


Alice Watson from the UK has had success after success here at the Sunshine Tour. Today was no different as she won the 6yr old class that was held in the   expansive Hickstead, grass arena. There were 74 horses in Section A. Alice was riding “Cintrix du Ruisseau” and the podium was completed by the French rider, Max Thirouin and another British rider, Ellen Whitaker.

“‘Cintrix du Ruisseau’, she is my little 6yr old. She is very small but she doesn’t know it! She has a very long stride and a great jump, she’s very brave, careful and rideable, which makes her very competitive. My fiancé and I bought her when she was just a 4yr old, from her breeders who are also friends. We bought her after seeing a video of her jumping for the first time on Facebook. We also knew the mare and the sire, “Cinsey”, who is actually here jumping in the GP, which is fantastic.


Section B started at 13:10, and was this won by the Max Thirouin this time  with “Etourdie du Temple”, which makes Max our third protagonist of the day. Emma Stoker once again was on the podium, this time in 2nd place and in 3rd was the Spanish rider, Ángel Cerdido Calderón with “Sevilla de Villafranca”.


Tomorrow is a busy day of jumping as this weeks CSI3* starts up with Big Tour classes that range from 1.35m to 1.50m.
