Dodson & Horrell National Amateur Second Round at Richmond Equestrian Centre
Thursday 18 October 2012
Richmond Equestrian Centre in North Yorkshire was the venue for a 0.90cm Dodson & Horrell National Amateur Second Round. The class attracted 14 starting combinations for the competition held on Saturday 13th October 2012. Following months of competition in the Dodson & Horrell National Amateur First Rounds, riders were competing in order to qualify for the Championship Final.
All of the combinations starting in the Dodson & Horrell 0.90cm National Amateur Second Round were all hoping to secure one of the twelve direct qualifying tickets on offer for the Dodson & Horrell National Amateur Championships, which take place at Aintree International Equestrian Centre in November 2012.
In this Second Round, 13 combinations made it through to the jump off and in the jump off, eight combinations achieved a double clear and the times decided the places.
The eventual winner was 61-year-old Tom Rome from Whitehaven, Cumbria and he won this second round on board his own 14-year-old dark bay stallion, Mr Twist. This combination cleared all seven fences in the jump off in a time of 35.96 seconds to seal the win and a place in the Championship Final.
In second place was Sara Blakey from Wingate, County Durham and she achieved her place in the Championship Final on board her own 16-year-old grey mare, Ferndale Summer Breeze. A faultless round in the jump off in a time of 38.04 seconds was enough to ensure a top two finish.
Third place was taken by 27-year-old Amy Lawrence from Richmond, North Yorkshire and she rode her own six-year-old grey gelding, Mr Grey. This combination posted an immaculate clear in the jump off in a time of 38.05 seconds.
A further nine riders also achieved their qualification for the Dodson & Horrell 0.90cm Championship Final.
