Tongala’s Kristy Marcon won the Pope Cup at the Royal Hobart Show with nine-year-old Grand Larceny (Andy).

Tongala’s Kristy Marcon has achieved an impressive result in winning the Pope Cup at the Royal Hobart Show.

Marcon, 25, won Best Heavyweight Horse and Best Open Horse with nine-year-old Grand Larceny, or Andy as he is known as at home, finishing ahead of 14 other competitors in his class.

She has owned Andy for 12 months since he finished on track.

Andy has previously achieved top-10 places as a newcomer at a Victorian Agricultural Society show and at the Barastoc Horse of the Year show.

He also received a top-10 open class place at a Show Horse Council event.

Marcon teaches young riders and one of her pupils, 11-year-old Rebecca Huismann, won Best Novice Rider in Hobart and finished second in the Open Rider class, which qualifies her for the Grand National championships in Sydney.

Marcon’s sister Kimberley Revell, 20, was also successful, winning Pony Club Champion Rider in what was the first Royal Show appearance for her horse Mystic Falls, otherwise known as Nato.
