Aoife Clark could not hide her delight after winning the Equi-Trek CCI3* at Bramham Horse Trials on Fenyas Elegance in dramatic style.

Irish international Clark, from Middle Barton, who won at Blenheim last year, was second overnight on PJ Heg-arty’s home-bred mare following the cross country, but showjumped clear to put pressure on leader Izzy Taylor, from Aynho, near Banbury.

However, Taylor, on Orlando, dropped to second as Clark, who won the dressage, clinched a thrilling victory.

“I hoped she’d jump well — she finished full of running yesterday (on Saturday) and she’s normally reliable in the showjumping,” said Clark.

“But I know Izzy and Orlando very rarely have a rail off, so I didn’t expect to end up in top spot.”
