Monday 22 October 2012
Badgworth Arena Show in Ayrbridge, Somerset played host to two of the Dodson & Horrell National Amateur Second Rounds on Sunday 14th October 2012. The venue held a 0.90cm National Amateur Second Round and a 1.10m National Amateur Second round.
Following a competitive season of first round competitions, competitors rode for the chance to qualify for the Dodson & Horrell National Amateur Championships, which takes place at Aintree International Equestrian Centre in November 2012 and all of the starting combinations were all hoping to secure one of the twelve direct qualifying tickets on offer for the Championships.
Dodson & Horrell 0.90cm National Amateur Second Round.
The 0.90cm National Amateur Second Round attracted 24 starting combinations and they all began their qualifying campaign for the Championship Final. From the starting combinations, 18 made it through to the jump off and with only 12 qualifying places up for grabs; all of the remaining combinations were hoping to achieve a double clear against the clock.
The overall winner was 53-year-old Mark Bennett from Stroud, Gloucestershire and he produced a superb double clear to secure the win on board his own Marnie of Rossin, a 10-year-old brown mare. Mark rode a fast double clear to secure the win in a time of 31.09 seconds.
Finishing in second place was 41-year-old Kirstie Davey from Pontyclun, Mid Glamorgan and she achieved her place on board her own nine-year-old bay mare, Miss Dior Line II. The combination achieved their second clear in a time of 31.25 seconds to ensure that they finished in second place.
Third place went to 14-year-old Tillie Newman from Dorset. Tillie rode Kernow Karma, a six-year-old chestnut gelding owned by Helen Newman and the combination produced their second clear in a time of 31.69 seconds.
A further nine riders also produced an immaculate double clear, achieving their qualification for the Dodson & Horrell 0.90cm National Amateur Championship Final.
