Anya took the championship, held at South View Equestrian Centre on 22 – 24 April, riding Mini Mouse 11. The tiny seven-year-old rider was also runner-up on her other pony, Brookhall Pavarotti. 

Anya took up show jumping during lockdown and now has a string of three jumping ponies.

“She’s very dedicated and we’re incredibly proud of her,” said Anna. 

“Our objective was to just get round, enjoy it and learn from it; it really is a dream come true. We can’t thank all the people supporting her enough.” 

Anya is no stranger to equestrian honours, having won the HOYS mini show pony of the year title last autumn aged just six. 

She’s amassing an impressive line-up of sponsors too, including Hy Equestrian, Little Rider, Supreme Products, TopSpec and Devoucoux.

Battles is a leading wholesaler to the equestrian trade.
