British Eventing launches The Howden Way Young Horse Leagues

British Eventing is delighted to announce the launch of The Howden Way Young Horse Leagues.  The leagues for 5 , 6 and 7-year-old horses are now live and the combined 8 & 9 year-old league will follow after Blenheim International Horse Trials later this month.

The leagues, powered by Equiratings, are based on a Power Based Average algorithm (PBA). Taking the average of a horse’s three best finishing scores at their respective level, the PBA highlights the consistency.

For this league, the PBA is calculated using the three best finishing scores from all 2022 British Eventing competitions at BE100, BE105 and CCI1* levels. Sara Squires currently holds the top spot with her own, Van Kaunitz. The gelding has delivered three sub-26 scores so far, giving them a PBA of 23.9 – 0.1 better than Ros Canter and Margie Ward-Read’s gelding, DHI Wingman.

The three best finishing scores for the 6-year-olds are taken from results at Novice, CCI2*-S and CCI2*-L. The early leader in this league is Laura Collett, with Killossery Kaptain owned by Fiona Rutland, Laura Glynn and Margaret Silver. Their PBA of 22.1 puts them just over a mark ahead of Sarah Bullimore and Corimiro, the gelding bred by Sarah’s husband Brett Bullimore.

This league counts the three best scores from Intermediate, CCI3*-S and CCI3*-L. Wills Oakden currently sits in the top spot with his recent Blair Castle winner, Stephanie Oakden’s Keep It Cooley. They hold a PBA of 25.0, just 0.5 of a mark ahead of Saffron Cresswell and Barratt Eventing’s Vivendo Hero.
