Double Win For Tabitha Kyle

Brilliant Winning Double for Tabitha

Tabitha Kyle completed a brilliant winning double at the TheraPlate UK Liverpool International Horse Show on Monday.

Just two hours after winning the 128cm pony championship, Tabitha triumphed in the P. Gowans Civil Engineering 138cm Championship.

It meant that she ends 2019 with a double at Liverpool, a double at the Horse of the Year Show and more than 150 wins in all competitions.

Those remarkable statistics underpin an amazing talent who, at just 12-years-old, continues to thrill audiences with her outstanding riding.

As in the 128cm class, she won from last to go in the jump-off, this time riding Playboy Van De Zoetewei.

Rachel Proudley and Buttons Two had set a scorching pace in 27.68 seconds, but Tabitha went more than two seconds quicker to take top honours, with Lauren Caroline and Jacoloupe in third and Poppy Deakin, riding Astral Ruben, finishing fourth.

“I have won three on the trot now of of the 138cm class here at Liverpool,” Tabitha said.

“I hit the wing pretty hard on my first pony in the jump-off (Lissduff Royal), and that pushed me back in my confidence a bit.

“But as as soon as they opened the gate, I just concentrated on the round with my second pony.

“It’s an amazing feeling, just so great. I am thrilled just to be invited here again, and it has been such a great experience.”
