Great Yorkshire 2015

17 July 2015

I had a great end to my Great Yorkshire Show, when Tinka ended up 3rd in the Cock O' the North class jumping three lovely clears.

Congratulations to Douglas Duffin who won the class.

Four riders from four nations did battle for the 2015 Ripon Select Foods Cock O’ the North title, with the title going to Scotland’s Douglas Duffin riding Richard Jenkinson’s Quidam BZ in the very last round of the competition.

With just four through to the second jump off, the packed grandstand saw Simon Buckley on Wordsworth II for England, Ireland’s Billy Twomey on Tinka’s Serenade and last year’s winner Robert Bevis, from Wales, on Courtney Z, along with Douglas Duffin, take on the demanding jump-off course which included the famous Cock O’ the North double of walls.

Douglas Duffin was just half a second faster than Robert Bevis to take the £8,000 first prize, with Billy Twomey jumping clear to finish third.
