Broadstone Dolce Vita, William Moran and Pearl Underwood’s star mare, were crowned the new Cuddy Group sponsored Supreme In-Hand Champion at Horse of the Year Show (HOYS). The 17-year-old mare now has one of the most prestigious and sought-after titles in the showing world to her name, following a prolific winning ridden career with Amy Underwood. She’s been with William Moran for the last three years and together they have claimed numerous championship titles.
The Reserve title went to the winner of the Pony section, Iain Almond and Caroline Cochran’s three-year-old Show Hunter Pony Litton Salvador, shown by Stuart Stafford. The pony is by Pickmere Sirocco out of Litton Sapphire.
Cuddy is a contest of the champion of champions as each contender has, throughout the season, been named overall Cuddy In-Hand Champion at a major county show.
The top two from the Horse and Pony sections here at HOYS go through to contest the overall Championship, which is open to light horses and ponies of all breeds and type.
