Nicole lays down the fashion Gauntlett on Ladies’ Day

The 21-year-old sported a floral, pastel-coloured dress from Chi Chi London accompanied by a pink fascinator from Accessorize, and her outfit caught the eye of celebrity judges Jodie Kidd and showjumper Joe Whitaker.

Nicole has won a luxury spa break for two at the Alexander House Hotel & Utopia Spa in West Sussex. Her prize includes dinner, champagne afternoon tea and a spa treatment for both guests, along with a magnum of Bollinger Champagne.

“I love Ladies’ Day! It means I can dress up nicely and I can finally get my boyfriend in a suit – most weekends are spent in the mud at Motocross competitions!” she said. 

Nicole enjoys coming to Hickstead, and is a horseowner herself – she owns a two-year-old Clydesdale/Hackney-cross and a Welsh Section A pony. She is starting a new job on Thursday, teaching disabled people to ride – so her Ladies’ Day win is a great way to celebrate.

In second place was Gemma Bing, who has won an overnight stay at Ockenden Manor Hotel & Spa, with dinner for two along with spa treatments. Joan O’Connor took the second runner-up spot, and has won an eight-course dinner at the Michelin-starred Pass Restaurant at South Lodge Hotel.
