Robert Whitaker Wins British Open Show Jumping Championships - Again!

Robert Whitaker retains the title at the British Open Show Jumping Championships on Sunday for the third time running. Robert claimed the £25,000 prize on his mother's 14 year old gelding 'Lacroix' who he rode throughout the rigorous 4 day event. In second place came Nathalie Vand De Mei (NED) and in third place Robert Smith (GBR).

Robert Whitaker began competing in Show Jumping at the age of 8 and now at 26 years old is ranked second with the British Show Jumping Association. It is plain to see that Robert is following in the footsteps of his father John Whitaker and Uncle, Michael Whitaker and is definitely a budding star for British Show Jumping.
