There was also a strong performance from Hayley Watson-Greaves, who finished second on Rubin Nite, while third place went to Emile Faurie and Bohemo Tinto and Richard Davison retired Don Bettino.
“I am really happy. That arena was spectacularly perfect in its footing and everything. It was well worth the trip. The horse needed the run, and that is only the second time I have ridden to that music. He is the biggest horse, just over 18 hands, and he is very sharp in his mind. He is so fast-thinking.
Bolesworth is a true international show. I really love it. The venue is stunning, the footing is stunning, and I really hope they can develop the dressage here. It was an amazing crowd tonight.”
And Hutton was thrilled with Super Blue, adding:
“He has been an amazing horse. He tries so hard, and what a great atmosphere here at Bolesworth. Today is the last time I will be competing him at Small Tour level. I am hoping to move up to Middle Tour and Grand Prix, so it was a really special occasion.
He was very spooky when he was younger, but I know him so well now that I feel I can handle it. He actually thrives on the bigger atmosphere, and he is a horse that has surpassed all expectations.”
