Catherine Walton lit up the AGA Championship for lady riders last season, surging into an early lead with three brilliant wins in successive weeks during January – at Sheriff Hutton, Alnwick and Friars Haugh – and she was never headed. Another win was notched at Whitcliffe Grange in March, and as the field jumped off in the AGA series final at Stratford Racecourse in May hopes were high that she could take the AGA back to the north-east. Despite being cheered on by a lively group of family and friends she was out of luck, as Sacred Mountain finished out of the places and Catherine had to settle for second place in the AGA championship. It was still a great effort and Catherine now holds the record for having more AGA jackets and hats than anyone in the world!
I hope Catherine enjoys looking back at these pics, it was quite a season and we all thoroughly enjoyed it, thanks for the memories!
