York-based 15-year-old Louise Boxall clinched victory in the BE90 section, keeping a clean sheet to finish on a style mark of 15.50 aboard her own nine-year-old gelding Clonlara Strawberry.

Just 0.5 penalties behind was 14-year-old Poole prospect Mary Foster with her own seven-year-old mare May Time III while third place went to 16-year-old Rotherham hopeful Eliza Yeardley and her own 12-year-old gelding Prince VIII, who added nothing to a style mark of 16.50.

York’s Helen Bosanquet-To stormed to victory in the BE80 class, the 33-year-old adding nothing to a style mark of 25.50 to win by 5.5 points aboard her own five-year-old gelding Lorbass.

Leeds-based Jennifer Deakin, 32, got the first British Eventing season of her career off to a flying start, taking second place on a style mark of 31.00 on her own 10-year-old gelding Danaway Sommersby.

Grimsby’s Heidi Clack, 24, finished third on her own 19-year-old gelding Charlie XXX after adding nothing to a style score of 32.00.
