Tuesday 29 September 2015
Congratulations to Samantha Holroyd & Merlot Time who was 3rd, Marysia Orzazewska & One of a Kind IV (5th) & Helen Buffin & Plan Bee II (7th) in the Dodson & Horrell 1.10m National Amateur Second Round at Chard Equestrian.
Qualifying them for Dodson & Horrell National Amateur Championships, which take place at Aintree Equestrian Centre in Liverpool during the 18th – 22nd November 2015
Competitors were swathed in sunshine on Sunday at Chard Equestrian in Crewkerne, Somerset and it was fifteen year-old Rachel Vicary from Crediton, Devon who tasted success in the Dodson & Horrell 1.10m National Amateur Second Round.
Competition was fierce as each and every starter came forward with the hope of claiming one of the twelve direct qualifying places on offer for the Dodson & Horrell National Amateur Championships, which will take place at Aintree Equestrian Centre in Liverpool during the 18th – 22nd November 2015.
Seven combinations went on to contest the jump off after producing a clear in the first round and five double clears were delivered in total.
Rachel took victory after clocking up the fastest double clear on her mother Amanda’s 14 year-old grey gelding Sparkling Indulgence. Drawn third to go in the jump off, this combination set the standard early on with their double clear in 39.27 seconds. This result was to eventually be the only one to break the 40 seconds barrier.
Sam Best from Dorchester, Dorset finished second with his own 16 year-old chestnut mare Foot Perfect II. The mare certainly lived up to her name after giving Sam a second foot perfect round in 42.08 seconds.
Third place went to Samantha Holroyd from Keynsham, Bristol and she rode her own 11 year-old chestnut gelding Merlot Time. This combination left all fences standing in 42.75 seconds.
