Judge is owned and ridden by Millie Bagnall.  This is Millie’s qualifying story…

I bought Judge at the end of 2008. Having come through the ranks of pony classes then moving into Cob and Hunter classes I was rather ‘out of the loop’ regarding Natives. A friend had heard Judge would be coming on the market and, knowing I had always coveted a Section D, called me. After a quick ‘Google’ of his name I hightailed it from University in Scotland to go see him. I fell in love with him and a deal was struck. What I didn’t realize was what a following he already had. In our first season I felt like I was in the company of a celebrity, Judge knows far more people than I do!

Since our first season in 2009 Judge and I have qualified for Royal International and HOYS several times.

This year Judge has had a fairly light season. At the Heritage Champs Judge was 3rd in the Semi Final and qualified for Olympia; I was in shock!

He has given me my most memorable rides in the Ring as well as some great results. He is one in a million, always puts a smile on my face and is truly the pony of a lifetime. I can’t wait to ride him at Olympia and know the Party-Animal himself is just as excited.

NPSW would like to wish Millie and Judge the best of luck at Olympia.
