Reigning Spring Tour Champion, Sven Hadley certainly showed his determination at Cavan Equestrian last Sunday when he rode to victory in the sixth leg of the Connolly’s Red Mills Spring Tour.

Hadley, who has been knocking on the door in the last few rounds, secured his first win of the series aboard the reliable Sumas Taloubet. Up to this point, the Galway rider had kept himself in contention of the title with placings in Broadmeadows, Cavan and Portmore. These consistent results, now means that he lies in poll position on the leaderboard with 28 points.
