Congratulations to British driver Roger Campbell, who has won the FEI’s Top Driver Award for Pony Fours in 2019.

He had finished near the top every year since he started driving a Pony Four, but this was the first time he had finished at the top of the table on a total of 32 points.

He beat Marijke Hammink of the Netherlands into second by 3 points and Steffen Brauchle (GER), Caroline Pariat (FRA) and Tinne Bax (BEL) into 3rd equal on 20 points.

Roger is a fabricator / welder and lives and works in Germany, which makes attending international events that little bit easier.

In the Top Driver Awards, athletes may compete in all competitions but only their 4 best results from FEI CAI3*, CAIO4* and Championship Events count for the overall classification. Points are awarded to drivers based upon their final classification at the event, linked to the number of drivers taking part.

Roger started the season with wins at Royal Windsor and Altenfelden and finished with 4th place individually and 5th in the team competition at the World Championships in Aszár Kisber.

One of Roger’s main strengths is his ability to drive clear rounds in cones, which has seen him move up the order on more than one occasion.
