Burrough Green show rider Georgie Shepherd believes she has ‘learned a lot’ from competing in the Retraining of Racehorses Championship.

The 29-year-old travelled to Hickstead with her ex-racehorse Historical Giant for the prestigious competition at the weekend, but came home empty handed.

Yet despite missing out on a placing, Shepherd was proud of their achievements.

“We are so proud to have been able to compete there,” she said. “It was a great experience which I’ve learned a lot from.

“Unfortunately it wasn’t our day. The judges gave me feedback of things to work on, and we’ll be trying to get back there for next year.”
