Isle of Man's 23-year-old Yasmin Ingham has added the prestigious eight- and nine-year-old CCI4*-S title, usually contested at Blenheim Palace but this week staged at Burnham Market, to her enviable list of accolades, finishing on her dressage score of 22.3 with the stunning nine-year-old Banzai du Loir.
Banzai du Loir was sourced by Uptown Eventing two years ago for owners Sue Davies and Janette Chinn with the aim of Paris 2024 Olympics in mind. "It was worth the mad gallop around Gare du Nord in Paris at 6am trying to find our platform to get the train to Le Mans to try him. He wowed us from the minute we saw him Banzai simply has IT he is stunning in every phase."
