The eleventh of the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Regional Finals was held last weekend on Sunday 29th July 2012 at Redpost Showjumping Club in Totnes, Devon.

In the final jump off, all the remaining combinations were hoping to produce the crucial treble clear required to qualify for the Championship Final.
