TROPHIES, rugs, sashes and rosettes were on offer at the Scottish Branch Trophy show held at the Scottish National Equestrian Centre, near Broxburn.

James Smith nearly made a clean sweep in the championship when he filled first third and fourth with his team topping the class with his grandfather Charlie McKerlie’s home-bred son of Berlin, Just Max.

This HOYS finalist has just returned from the Addington Premier with James where he was jumping the 1.4m and B+C classes making light work of this course to finish almost two seconds clear of Douglas Duffin on the Scottish bred Moonface JX.

In third was a new ride for James, the nine-year-old Vluet sired mare Doryane HD a former ride of Irelands Gavin Ingram with Graham Gillespie’s Flinstering in fourth.

Graham Babes filled fifth with Boucheron leaving Aimee Bell the highest placed lady with Cameron Poe.

Mark Turnbull was seen bedecked in rosettes following his win in the young riders' championship on board Caroline Orr’s flashy chestnut, Beseeka Red Hot Chilli Pepper.

This 11-year-old has enjoyed success in the working hunter ring with Nancy Orr on board but is also super careful over coloured poles showing Graham Babes and Patricia Fraser’s Cluedo a clean pair of heels to take the title.

Gillian Anderson is busy organising the BS Ball to be held again at Airth Castle but taking time out she not only secured the 1.2m title on her own Congeniality B but also took one of the first Royal Highland Show qualifiers tickets when placed in the same class on JJ’s Prince Chaccomo.

Also taking an RHS ticket and rounding off a super weekend for the Wilmer family from south Ayrshire was Greg Taylor on Formule 1.

The youngest registered member of Team Wilmer, Cara was the delighted winner of the New Recruits final on her lovely little grey Twilight Dancer. A regular attendee of the BS Junior Academy and a winner of many unaffiliated events as well as showing and workers this was Cara’s first major BS win having only been registered a few weeks.

Lucy Rennie who rides Parkhill Legacy for Jim Wilmer had a lot to live up to following Cara’s win but managed to pull off a double on the senior day heading both the 1m and 1.10m classes despite some fast opposition. This partnership now head south to Aintree to contest the amateur finals.

Teenager Lucy had also won an 85cm and stood second in a 95cm, behind Charey Hamilton on Taraco Emerad the previous day on the pony GEC Delight.

Taking a backseat from competing herself mother Lesley Paton stood and watched as daughter Lucy Watson raced round to win the 11 and under final then thoroughly enjoy her well-deserved lap of honour bedecked in frillies.

Lucy’s winning mount was her super little mare Whinny Bothwell, a winner at Rockrose and Morris recently.

Leading the Scottish 128cm points it was no surprise to see Amy Morris and Madonna stand at the head of the line in the 128cm indoor championship with fellow HOYS finalist William Stewart second and third with Billibob and Soxs Pocket Rocket, respectively.

Another HOYS finalist Paddy’s Pet may be on the market but he still gave Mya Roxburgh Caira another win when he remained clear and fast to secure the 138cm indoor championship final title.

Nicole Lockhead Anderson continued her winning ways in the Indoor JC Championship on board Tiernisks Cruising Clover but had to concede defeat in the final class of the day the JA Indoor championhip.

In this class, it was the turn of local rider Sandy McLean to take the honours riding his own Connemara Tobar King leaving Nicole in second and third on Lyncott Fancy Pants and Beech Comber.
