After winning individual gold Yasmin Ingham said “Honestly, I’m still not believing it at the moment. I really didn’t think this would happen,”My horse Banzai (du Loir) was just just impeccable today and I couldn’t fault him in the showjumping round. I’m just over the moon and I can’t explain how happy I am; I’m still shaking. “It was extremely nerve-wracking. I just tried to treat it as a normal competition and do my normal routine and structured system. I blocked everything else out and he (Banzai) delivered today, he was just perfect.”
