The Dengie Winter League Area Championship took place on Saturday in weather more suited to Christmas than Easter - and a young Bunwell rider was triumphant.

Despite the dreadful conditions a superb turnout of young riders from all over the region came to the ILPH at Snetterton.

The Dengie Competition had nearly 40 entries with 13 going through to the jump-off.

Hannah Vincent, from Bunwell, who has recently got sponsorship from Paul Hammond, owner of Diss Windows and Conservatories, took the Area Championship in fantastic form after a nail-biting jump-off.

The standard of competition was superb, with each of the riders determined to take one of the top four placings, enabling them to compete at Warwickshire College this coming weekend.

Hannah is a keen and active member of the Norfolk Show Jumping Club and also the Thetford Chase Pony Club and is entering her second full year of affiliated show jumping.

She is proving that the Vincent competitive spirit is just as strong at 14-years-old, as with her two elder sisters and mother Sue Vincent - all regular, well-known competitors throughout the region.

Hannah hopes to make show jumping her profession and with the kind backing of DW&C and coaching from her mother Sue, this looks a real dream come true for this talented young rider.
