NORTH Yorkshire rider Louise Hoyle scooped top spot in the Nupafeed Supplements Senior Discovery Second Round at Dean Valley Equestrian Centre in Cheshire on Sunday.

With a clear two second lead, Hoyle, from Catterick Garrison, rode her own eight-year-old chestnut mare, B Dior Papillon, to victory.

An initial starting field of 60 competitive riders came forward, with 21 combinations delivering a double clear for a place in the final jump-off. With the pressure on, Hoyle kept her cool to jump around the track in 38.07 seconds to claim first place and a triple clear.
