Tuesday 30 May 2017
In the glorious sunshine on Sunday at Bicton Arena in Salterton, Devon, Adrian Whiteway secured victory in the Connolly’s RED MILLS Senior Newcomers Second Round.
With two qualification spots on offer for the Connolly’s RED MILLS Senior Newcomers Championship Final, which will be held during this October’s Horse of the Year Show, a bumper crop of 110 keen starters had their eyes firmly on the top prizes.
The first two rounds posed some tough questions, leaving just nine horses and riders to go forward to the final jump off, where only three combinations went on to claim a treble clear against the all-important clock.
Adrian Whiteway from Wraxall, Bristol jumped firmly in to first place on board Boavista Delsendam, an 8 year-old bay gelding owned by Leonne George. This partnership had speed on their side as they took on the challenges of the jump off to cross the finish line with all the fences still standing in 43.68 seconds.
Taking home second place was Donna Callaghan from Axbridge, Somerset riding Ashley Callaghan’s 7 year-old chestnut stallion, Freek VT Scharenborg. This pair claimed their treble clear in a time of 47.23 seconds.
The riders and horses that finished in third to fifth took home the chance to compete in the Connolly’s RED MILLS Senior Newcomers Masters at the British Showjumping National Championships.
