Winning Pair

New Zealand showjumper Samantha McIntosh, 34, has won the closing class of the day at Britain’s Horse of the Year show in Birmingham. McIntosh, who lives near Cologne, Germany, took the Zinc Management Trophy and £5 with Loxley 38 riding in her first indoor show of the year and in a return to riding for New Zealand. McIntosh has been based in Germany for 14 years and rode for Bulgaria for nine of those before taking advantage of a rule which gave riders one last chance to revert. She runs her own business from the Hirtenhof stable of Patricia Luthi and Gunther Orshel in Aach, southern Germany.
