WISBECH showjumper Rosie Manning was in top form at the Royal International Horse Show at Hickstead.

The 15-year-old and her pony Mr Greengrass finished fourth out of the 29 qualifiers who hailed from across the country.

She was one of only four to complete a clear round.

Manning qualified for the show by winning at the Royal Norfolk Show and finishing second at the Suffolk county show in the Working Hunter Pony class.

She will compete in two more national competitions this year: The Pony Club Eventing Championships next month and then the National Tetrathlon Championships at Hartpury College, Gloucester where she will swim, shoot, run and ride cross-country.

Manning would like to thank Wisbech Swimming Club who have supported her with her training and also to Michael Tawn Airgun Supplies who have provided her with her shooting equipment.
