SOPHIE AND HASSAN QUALIFY FOR THE HORSE OF THE YEAR SHOW

THIS IS PARICULARLY SPECTACULAR BECAUSE SOPHIE IS ONLY 8 YEARS OLD AND IS RIDING IN THE NOT EXCEEDING 133cms SHOW HUNTER PONY CLASS WHICH IS FOR CHILDREN UP TO 14 YEARS OLD, SO SHE WAS RIDING AGAINST CHILDREN WHICH ARE 6 YEARS OLDER THAN HERSELF! WHAT AN ACHIEVEMENT!!
IN FACT SOPHIE IS STILL ELIGIBLE TO RIDE IN THE LEADING REIN CLASS.
