TWO county riders have swept the board at recent events.

Rob Skyrme, from Richards Castle, won two showjumping classes at the Herefordshire Country Fair, while Lucy Pincus, from Bartestree, swept the board at Hickstead by taking both classes for riders aged under-25.

Skyrme, 20, won aboard Springville and The Silver Touch and also picked up the Orles Barn Perpetual Cup despite competing against some every experienced riders.

Meanwhile, Pincus, who is also 20, was riding Don Calisto, who she has produced herself for training and dressage stages.

The Hartpury College student then went on to compete in the British Dressage Area Championship at Chepstow, but had to settle for fourth place in the Prix St George.
