Steady won the day for Ella Rae-Wood and Tallyho Primrose in the Country TV Pony Grand Prix at the Marlborough Area Spring Jumping Show today.

The Greymouth combination came home nearly four seconds slower than runners-up Johanna Wylaars (Christchurch) and Wembleybrook Tiffany, but more importantly left everything in its cups.

Peita Milne (Nelson) had a great show with her team, taking the quinella in the FMG Young Rider Series class with Ngahiwi Warrior and Global PH Mylorde, and then later winning the  Cavalleria Toscana Horse Mini Prix aboard Ngahiwi Warrior.

It was also a good outing for Rose Alfeld (Leeston) who won the Harrison Lane Pro-Amateur Rider Series class with My Super Nova, took out the Matthews Hanoverians Seven-Year-Old Series class with Eye Catcher NZPH and was first equal in the East Coast Performance Horses Five-Year-Old Series class with Celebration ECPH.

Anna Nalder (North Canterbury) was victorious in the Mainland Coachwork Junior Rider Series class with Icebreaker II with Georgia McClintock (Cheviot) and WHF Eclipse winning the Dunstan Horsefeeds Amateur Rider class.
