Jock Paget wins Burghley!
To win Badminton and Burghley on the same horse in the same year is a feat that no-one has achieved since Ginny Leng on Master Craftsman back in 1989!
It was the most exciting Burghley Horse Trials ever as Jock Paget took the lead right from dressage phase and held it all the way on Clifton Promise! Incredibly Jock also held second place too on Clifton Lush after the cross-country! Unfortunately Lush had a bang on the fetlock during cross-country and Jock decided to withdraw him before the trotting up for the showjumping phase.
Jock won with a rail still in hand over fellow NZer Andrew Nicholson who took second and third place.
Jock’s rise to stardom is amazing. Like the incredible UK rider Mary King, Jock is a latecomer to eventing. He had never jumped a fence before he was 18 and made his living for a while riding rodeo broncs! Now he is one of the best eventers in the world and has won the two most famous four stars – Badminton and Burghley.
*Super-secret fact for Pony Club Secrets readers: Stacy actually based the character of Marcus Pearce from PCS books 12 & 13 on Jock after having riding lessons with him!
