Listen to the Island’s only rider after her glittering run at the Osborne Horse Trials.
Sarah Holmes, 27, from Rookley, never had the pleasure of riding in an eventing competition on the Island before this event in East Cowes at Osborne House.
On Thursday (July 26) she finished the grand prix event and placed 10th in her section riding Lowhill Clover – her own horse.
Miss Holmes had a beautiful run and went clear in the show jumping and the cross country event.
The day before in Wednesday’s (July 25) show jumping event riding Greenvale Coriado the Island rider also managed to go clear.
The rider was greeted on both days of the trials to loud applause and cheers, which she said was “emotional” and “overwhelming”.
