David Harland commands a win at Alnwick Ford

David Harland claimed a commanding win with Sarata 3 in the KBIS British novice second round at Alnwick Ford Equestrian in Northumberland.

Of the 30 starters, seven made their way to the third and final round against the clock – but treble clears proved thin on the ground. In second draw, David was the sole rider to deliver a penalty-free third round, and with it won the class on Elizabeth Smith’s five-year-old Sarata.

Abby Davison was almost two sec behind David’s lightning-quick time and also picked up four faults on the eight-year-old Eifona, but their efforts were sufficient for second spot.
