Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Qualifier at the South of England Show
Tuesday 12 June 2012
The third Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C qualifying competition took place during the first day (Thursday 7th June 2012) of the South of England Show in Ardingly, West Sussex. The class was well attended and attracted 47 starting combinations, who were all hoping to claim their qualification for the Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Championship, which will be held at the Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) on Sunday 7th October 2012.
From the total number of starters, 15 combinations went clear in the first round to make it through to the final jump off and from these combinations, seven went on to produce the all important double clear needed to put them in contention for Championship Final qualification. With only three direct qualifying places available for the Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Championship Final, the placings came down to the final jump off times.
The class produced an all female top three and the overall winner of the qualifier was 24-year-old Nicole Pavitt from Crawley, West Sussex. Nicole produced her double clear on board Lisa Tudor’s seven-year-old mare, Festina Van Texelhof. Nicole’s time of 31.97 seconds secured her the win and her qualification for the Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Championship Final.
Nicole also enjoyed further success in the class as she also finished in second place, this time on Sandra Pavitt’s eight-year-old stallion, Zeppeling. Nicole brought the stallion home clear over the jump off course in a time of 32.50 seconds to clinch the second qualifying spot for the Championship Final.
The third and final qualification place went to 24-year-old Lola Wade from Farnham, Surrey. Lola rode David Jackson’s eight-year-old gelding, Zoro ID into the placings with a clear in a time of 32.61 seconds.
