Shaunie Greig dominates the Equithème Leading Pony Showjumper of the Year Qualifier at Arena UK
Monday 14 May 2018
Continuing her winning form from the Blue Chip Feed Pony Newcomers Second Round earlier in the day, Shaunie Greig went on to dominate the Equithème Leading Pony Showjumper of the Year Qualifier at Arena UK’s Pony Premier in Grantham, Lincolnshire.
All twenty-eight combinations had their sights set on picking up one of the three qualification tickets on offer for the Championship Final held at Horse of the Year Show later this year. The technical course saw poles fall and only two clears produced in the first round.
Building on her earlier success 15 year-old Shaunie from Fife dominated the top of the leader board jumping clear on both of her rides. Clearing all the fences in a speedy first round, Shaunie finished in 70.44 seconds on board Moonlight Flight, a 21 year-old bay gelding owned by Anne Greig. With the only clear rounds of the class being produced by Shaunie, she decided not to jump off and Moonlight Flight was declared as the winner.
The riders and ponies that finished in first to fourth took home the chance to compete in the Equithème National 148cm Championship at the British Showjumping National Championships.
