Jayne has had a very successful 2014 with Deauville, qualifying her several times for HOYS. The 5 yo mare first qualified with Jayne at Three Counties show and since then has won many more classes and Championships.
Jayne took her to HOYS which was expected to be a little bit daunting for a 5 yo, but she took it all in her stride, behaving like she had been there before.
She was amazing in the class and did a super show, getting the highest marks and Jayne also receiving the highest ride mark.
This topped the season off with Jayne taking the HOYS title of ‘Ladies Hunter of the Year 2014’.
Check out Jayne’s website here.
