BLUE CHIP WINTER SHOW JUMPING CHAMPIONSHIPS
Monday 10 April 2017
All roads led to Hartpury and the Blue Chip Winter Showjumping Championships as this five-day meeting – now in its 26th year – proved more popular than ever and guaranteed early starts and late night finishes.
Chloe Reynolds came for one class at these championships and promptly won the Blue Chip Karma Performance title with opening round on Jane Reynolds’ consistent Grenadier Volo, a Numero Uno x Quidam de Revel 6-year-old. And there was an added bonus – Chloe, 18, also won a brand new Prestige saddle.
“I’d been planning to buy a new saddle,” said a delighted Chloe.
Flo Norris, 15, claimed the HorseQuest UK Coral title with a deceptively quick, smooth round on Cisca Norris’ Irish-bred 10-year-old Craughwell Boy, winning by 1.48 seconds.
“He knows his job and what to do,” said Flo, 15, who relies on the training advice of British Showjumping accredited coach Lynne Bevan.
