Eventing Nation: Hickstead Derby winners Phillip Miller & Caritiar Z

British showjumper Phillip Miller produced the only clear round of the day on Caritiar Z to win the 53rd Hickstead Derby yesterday.

The horse is notoriously difficult to ride, and Phillip says the best thing he ever did for the horse was “cut them off” and make him a gelding at the age of 8, so it seems to be finally coming together for the pair after ten years of partnership. We don’t yet have a video of the winning round, but here’s a good one of their round last year, where you can see what a soft quiet rider Phillip is, and how much flair the horse has over the jumps, even if he was a bit cautious down the famous bank!
