Talented Tillie in sparkling showjumping form

Hartpury's rising showjumping star, Tillie Newman, has kept up her excellent form with two victories in the last week.

Riding her grey mare, Bullet Power, she secured a success in the 1.15 metres at Badgeworth and, at West Wilts, the duo had a win in the 1.15m as well as securing an impressive third place in their first 1.20m.

Talented Tillie, 17, who is also one of the college’s equine scholars, was recently selected for the BEF England Excel Talent Programme squad. She will be part of this squad for the next two years after impressing selectors with her performances over the last 12 months.
