Danielle Heath took to the Horse of The Year Show this year for the first time and celebrated a double win riding Oathills Take The Biscuit, owned by Sally Iggulden.
Blue Chip Feed Owner Clare Blaskey caught up with Danielle and Sally at HOYS 2011 to talk about her spectacular win, how they found the horse and what it feels like to ride in the championships.
Danielle was sponsored by Blue Chip earlier this year for the first time. It was her first time riding at HOYS, as well as first win.
Sally Iggulden met the breeder of winning horse, Oathills Take The Biscuit, by buying another horse. Neither Sally or Danielle had seen Oathills in the flesh but they liked what they saw from photos and took a leap of faith and brought him.
He is a 5 year old horse so it was his first season under saddle, he is a very balanced horse and has good manners. Hunter judge, Paul Cook said he gave him the best ride of the day and Sue Rawding said that the only problem was Danielle got the horse and not her.
Danielle said it was a dream come true to win HOYS. She described the atmosphere as fantastic and loved having all her owners there to witness her spotlight moment, which she calls a team effort.
