15 year old Oliver Tuff has pulled off a major surprise to win one of the most iconic show jumping classes in British Show jumping the Senior Foxhunters at the Horse of the Year show at the NEC in Birmingham on Thursday.

First staged in 1954 and won by some of the greatest names in the sport including David Broome and 2016 Olympic Gold Medallist NIck Skelton , Tuff took on his much older rivals to win the jump off by nearly 2 seconds.

Tuff based in Devon,was naturally overwhelmed by his achievement in winning the competition which is celebrating its 70th Anniversary
