Highfox Faith, Supreme Champion Performance Points Competition, NNFPSG 2015; Junior Champion and Versatility Champion; 1st Ridden and 1st In Hand Sections; 2nd Dressage, 3rd Utility and 5th Jumping.
2015 has been the most remarkable year for Highfox Faith and owner, rider, producer 16 year old Philippa Hadwen. Pictured left winning the New Forest Home Produced class at Equifest, where they also won the Hewitt Family Open Ridden Final for New Forest ponies. Faith was Junior winner at the New Forest Breed Show (qualifying for the Junior Ridden at the NPS Champs 2016 and the Young Rider Championship), 2nd in the novice ridden, 4th in the combined training and 5th in the dressage. She was also 2nd in the Home Produced NPS Junior Final at the Summer Champs, 6th in the Open NPS Junior Final, 9th in the 4,5,6 year old final (even with a mistake!) and so very nearly won the Picton Novice Final, only to be robbed of this by a serious fall at the end of her show (caused by ground conditions) having been pulled top of a strong class and having gone beautifully in her individual. Very disappointing, but at least pony and rider survived to compete another day!
Faith was also Champion Ridden, Reserve Champion in Hand and winner of her WHP class at Ryburn Valley's Annual Show and Champion Pony at the lovely Gargrave Show.
Add to this wins in both Intro and Prelim dressage tests and good placings in her first showjumping competitions and you can safely assume that we have had a great time with this little mare.
