As New Year’s Eve approached, there was one last accolade to be awarded. Allstar B beat Badminton winner Classic Moet to the title EquiRatings Horse of the Year 2018 in a public vote.
EquiRatings said on its Facebook page:
“The world champion beat Classic Moet in the closest final vote we have ever had. Molly has fans all over the world so this was no easy win.
“Alby & Ros had a WEG finishing score of 24.6 – the second lowest in the history of the World Championships. On the biggest stage, with the eyes of the world on them, they produced the lowest finishing score of Allstar B’s career (international, all levels) and the second lowest international of Ros’ career (the other was in a CCI1* in 2015).
“Great things await in 2019 and beyond. Well done champ.”
