LEDBURY showjumper Charlotte Pudge went clear to take victory in a second round qualifier and book her place in the British Showjumping National Championships.

Pudge riding her eight-year-old grey gelding Cassinaro Dream took victory in the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Second Round at Aston Le Walls Equestrian Centre in Daventry, Northampstonshire.

Some 35 horses contended this final second round qualifier of the 2018 summer season and 30 hopefuls produced first round clears over the 10-fence track.

Just two were lost on the way in round two with 28 going forward to a strong jump-off.

Pudge again jumped a confident round, holding off all challenges to win by an impressive 1.22 seconds with 17 of the horse and rider combinations provided treble clears to go forward to the National Championships.
