Seb Burnett-Wells made the perfect start to his riding career less than two weeks after his 16th birthday when landing the Novice Riders Race at the North Norfolk Harriers Point-To-Point at Higham, between Colchester and Ipswich, yesterday (February 19th).

Burnett-Wells betrayed none of his inexperience while guiding Abbey Lane – who is trained at Timworth, near Bury St Edmunds, by Andrew Pennock – to his third victory of the season.
