The 21-year-old – tipped by the BBC as one to watch for the 2016 Rio Olympics – jumped a double clear on Raphael II, owned by Vanessa Watson of Bishop Sutton.
The result capped a busy week for Evans, who has returned to her family base in Woollard after spending 2012 under the tutelage of three-day eventing legend Pippa Funnell.
She also competed at Aston-le-Walls in the Open Intermediate under-21 section G, where she placed third on Smart Time, fourth on Kali de L Aer and seventh on her own Herbst Golden Eclipse.
Evans was also invited to be a guinea pig for the dressage judges at the recent Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials.
In the next few weeks, she will be competing in international three-day events at Bramham in Yorkshire and Tattersalls in Ireland but her ultimate aim for 2013 is to earn selection for the European Young Rider Championships, which are being staged in Jardy, France, during September.
