A PRESTON schoolboy is celebrating after bagging a win at a top showjumping competition.

Fourteen-year-old Robert Murphy rode Richard Lunn’s eight-year-old bay mare Shannonbay Extra to victory at the Pony Premier Show at Sparsholt College in Hampshire last weekend. Forty one starting combinations came forward to this second round hoping to take home one of the three qualifying places on offer for the Squibb Group Pony Foxhunter Championship Final at Horse of the Year Show. In the end, victory was taken by Robert after he produced an immaculate treble clear in 39.87 seconds.
