Posted on | 0 Responses

Ellen Whitaker won the British Open Show Jumping Championships title after competing with her cousin, Robert Whitaker on Sunday 11 April.

Ellen and her horse Equimax Ocolado jumped a foot-perfect round to finish on four points in the quick time of 48.10 seconds. Her cousin Robert on his horse USA Today had to jump clear or be faster with four faults to retain the title.

The competition ended with equal points between the two competitors but a faster time meant that Ellen won. It was an incredibly exciting and dramatic end to the 4 day competition.

“I am so happy! Equimax Ocolado jumped out of his skin and has been so careful every step of the way, “Ellen explained. “ This is one title I have been chasing for a while and one I really wanted to win so I am ecstatic with the result and the £25,000 first prize.”
