Thursday Video: Watch Gemma Stevens Take Hickstead Victory

One of my favourite parts of working on the press team at England’s All-England Jumping Course at Hickstead is that one day every July in which I get to see my pals from the eventing world, as they descend en masse to take part in the Ashby Underwriting Eventers Challenge. Part Derby course, with a spin up the iconic bank and through the tough Devils Dyke, and part arena cross-country track, it’s fast, furious, and incredibly exciting to watch. This year’s winner, Gemma Stevens (nee Tattersall) produced such an efficient, clever round with the former Liz Halliday-Sharp ride Flash Cooley that they could even afford a pole down en route to the win. Check out how they did it in this exciting video!
