Anna Sumner, 14, from Chipping Pony Club, with her mother Abigail’s 10 year-old dun gelding Our Dun who took the title in the Pony Discovery Championship Final on Sunday at the British Showjumping National Championships.

Anna, of Salesbury, was ecstatic with her win and could not wipe the smile from her face.

“He jumped amazing. Usually I knock the first fence.

“He has done so much for me.”

The combination has only been together since October last year, and have already placed second and fifth at this year’s British Showjumping National Championships.

Through her membership of Chipping Pony Club, Anna qualified to receive a second accolade. This year Pony Club is acknowledging the highest placed Pony Club member by presenting them with a Pony Club sash and rosette.

This saw Anna decorated in sashes and a rug as she made her victory lap.

The win was an emotional one for the pair as Anna and her mother expressed their pride and admiration for Our Dun, also known as Donald.

Anna’s mother Abby said “He’s wonderful, just a phenomenal pony, such a good attitude and gives 100% all the time, 110% when we need it.”
