The British Showjumping Advanced/Progressive Show at Easton & Otley College in Easton attracted a record number of entries.
Some of the region's biggest names tackled course builder David Cole's challenging festive-themed course.
Michelle Lowe, from Stalham, and Vivendinoble Cavalier took the honours in the British Novice class, ahead of Kelly Hanry and Clarentino.
Young Norfolk rider Nissi Ladell, 15, jumped a great round in the 1.15m Open on board nine-year-old bay mare Ayonie to take the honours, ahead of Marianne Rockcliffe riding the Eastern Advocat. Lizzy Gray, on Capitol Star, took on the Discovery class with success and Lizzy also had a more personal interest in this show as class 7 was the Lord Jovi Memorial Class, in memory of Lizzy's Grade A showjumper with which she had so much success at Easton and across the region.
The class was well-attended and Derek Meens presented the awards alongside Lizzy and her family, with top Essex showjumper Laura Renwick picking up the winning prize ahead of Tim Davies who took second and third places.
As well as a very generous first prize the family wanted the perpetual trophy to go to the highest placed Norfolk rider along with a sash and a rug, and it was Jenny Mitchell riding Dhumavarna who took home this prize.
Easton and Otley College would like to thank all sponsors for their generous assistance towards this event.
