Festival of British Eventing: Lancashire’s Ben Hobday thrilled with brilliant Gatcombe win

 

The Festival of British Eventing takes place this weekend at Gatcombe Park (August 4th – 6th) and once again Gloucestershire welcomes a host of the world’s best to compete.

Lancashire’s Ben Hobday battled through torrid weather conditions to jump clear in the showjumping and cross country to win the Novice Championship with a score of 34.1 on board Shadow Man II.

Hobday told Josh Peacock he was delighted with his horse and hopes the win will set a precedent for more success in the future.
