David Simpson claims second Queen Elizabeth II Cup title at Hickstead

Jess Crofts

The most important national show jumping class of the year in the UK is undoubtedly the historic Queen Elizabeth II Cup held on the Saturday of the Longines Royal International Horse Show at Hickstead. The competition was established in 1949 and is restricted to members of British Showjumping. David already won this coveted trophy with Chessy 17 in 2016 and hoping to add his name to the roll of honour for a second time with Maruska Vitek’s Gentleman van het Veldof. David has only been competing Gentleman since the Hickstead Derby Show in June, but the partnership has gelled quickly and from third place in the draw they posted the first clear round of the class.


David was first to go in the five horse jump-off, they set off at a strong pace, and delivered a very smooth clear round to stop the clock at 41.05 seconds. Second last to go Helen Tredwell was just one second slower and last to go Mark Edwards gave us some tense moments as he was up on the clock, but luckily for David the last fence fell.

David’s fantastic win topped off a very busy, and exceptionally hot and long week at Hickstead, with national classes starting on Tuesday. David had good placings in Foxhunter classes on Claire Cornford’s Hennessy, and our lovely homebred six year old Balloon Cruise was placed in the 1.20 on Friday. It was a good opportunity to catch up with our pupils and see many of them have good placings, and Hickstead shows are also a great place to catch up with sponsors, owners and friends.
