Eleven-year-old Izzy Williams took on the adults at this year’s Horse of the Year Show in Birmingham and incredibly came within one mark of the winner in the Working Hunter Pony competition.

The budding equestrian, who started riding when she was two, attends St Swithun’s School in Winchester. She and her Mountain Moorland pony Hugo qualified for the competition last August and she has spent weeks preparing for the ride of her young life.

Headmistress at St Swithun’s Ms Jane Gandee said that pupils and staff at the school were proud of Izzy’s achievement. “Izzy has been a pupil at St Swithun’s since reception. After joining the senior school last month Izzy is already showing that serious hobbies, working hard and having fun are not mutually exclusive. We look forward to seeing Izzy’s riding career progress.”
