A Trade Sales Manager for SPILLERS, official feed to the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials, Nikki Collins, had the ride of her life to take 5th place at the prestigious Mitsubishi Motors Cup (formerly the Mitsubishi Motors Grassroots Championships) earlier this month, 3rd – 4th May 2016.
Riding her homebred mare Jumbo’s Rose II the pair were joint leaders after the first day of dressage on a score of 25.9. They jumped clear show jumping and went on to jump a clear cross country round, coming home 13 seconds inside the optimum time. She has dedicated her win to her inspiring, horse loving Mum, who sadly lost her battle against bowel cancer in 2014.
