The Great Yorkshire Show is one of the most prestigious — and therefore hotly contested — shows on the summer circuit, so to win there is a feather in anyone’s cap.
Michaela Wood landed the intermediate championship on Thursday (July 14 ) in fine style, producing a fittingly elegant show on the small riding type DP UK Night Dancer to head a competitive section of 13.
The stunning mare, by Mooiman out of Bowland Forest Ivy, has been a consistent winner for Team Wood, triumphing at Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) in 2014, and claiming several accolades last season. At her first show this term, she was champion hack and intermediate at Lincolnshire Spring Show.
There was further Great Yorkshire Show success for the team when their reigning Cuddy in-hand supreme, Romanno Royale, in his first season under saddle, won his middleweight class and stood reserve hunter champion, ridden by Simon Charlesworth.
