Olympic rider Gemma Stevens retains lead in Equilume League

Gemma Stevens and The Rex Syndicate’s seven-year-old gelding Cooley Park Muze are still top of the leader board in the Equilume PBA League table. They sit on a power average of 21.2, their top three scores coming from a fifth-place at Burnham Market international in the BE100 with 24.2, a BE100 win at Horseheath with a score of 9.8, and a 29.5 score in the novice at Aston-Le-Walls (2) for fourth.

Powered by EquiRatings and supported by Equilume, the league takes a combination’s three best finishing scores from all British Eventing events in the 2023 season and creates a Power Based Average (PBA).

The leader of the league at the end of the season will receive an extremely generous prize – £1,000 in prize money, plus £500 worth of Equilume products!

From someone new to British Eventing doing their first grassroots competitions, through to those at advanced level who have been a member for years, the idea of the league is that all BE members are on a level playing field, meaning the league can be headed by members competing at any level.

Sitting just a point below Gemma in second place is Lucy Robinson and Sonia Winter’s six-year-old gelding Ecclesbourne Shark Bay with a power average of 22.1. The pair recently landed the BE90 open regional championship at Frickley Park with a score of 23.9. They also enjoyed two early season BE90 open wins, one at Stafford on a score of 23.5 and another at Calmsden on 18.8. Lucy also topped the league in May with Georgie Rockingham’s 12-year-old mare Olaris Beech.

Currently third in the league on a power average of 22.7 is Katie Magee and Sharon Parnaby’s six-year-old gelding Cushlas Indigo. The combination has enjoyed three wins this season so far, starting with a BE100 victory at Breckenbrough with 24.3, a novice win at Alnwick Ford International (1) with 21.8 and a CCI-S2* win at Burgham International on 21.9.
