Gemma Tattersall has been a dominant performer in the 2017 ERM series, delivering top ten finishes in all the five legs she has competed in. She has ridden four different horses across the series this year, as well as winning Leg 1 with Quicklook V and Leg 5 with Arctic Soul. This weekend, she secured fourth place riding Pamero 4 finishing on a score of 53.7, after producing a double clear in the showjumping and cross country phases, adding 11.2 time penalties to her dressage score. Tattersall now cannot be caught in the series as she sits at the top the leaderboard on 108 points and will win the £30,000 series cheque at next months series finale.
Gemma Tattersall elated with her first ERM series win, said;
“I decided to the target the ERM series at the end of last year. I had a plan of which horses I was hoping to ride at each leg, but I’ve had to be flexible as things often happen with horses to change the situation, but I am delighted how it’s panned out and how all the horses have all performed! This series makes us really compete, and I don’t come to a leg just to canter round, I arrive with the aim to finish on the podium”.
“Pamero 4 is a recently new ride for me and he has been produced perfectly by Laura Collett. I am very happy with him and how he’s performed this weekend and all year. He has given his very best across all three phases and I feel there is more to come from him and has an exciting future”.
