Amy Hardcastle delivers the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Second Round win at Ashby Show

A busy weekend at Ashby Show in Coalville, Leicestershire saw the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Second Round hotly contested and it was Amy Hardcastle who delivered the winning round.

All of the thirty-nine horse and rider combinations started the class with high hopes of securing a place in the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Championship Final which is to be held at the British Showjumping National Championships in August. With poles falling across the first two rounds, just eight combinations were left to tackle the jump off.

Amy Hardcastle from Goole, North Humberside broke the 50 second barrier to guide AJ The First, a 6 year-old bay stallion owned by Joseph Huddlestone, into first place. With a middle order draw, this pair knew it was all still to play for as they took on the jump off course. They crossed the finish line with a treble clear in an unbeatable 48.20 seconds.

Local rider Nicola Barry from Coalville, Leicestershire took second place on her 5 year-old bay mare, Highhope DD. This combination put forward a strong challenge leaving all the fences standing for a treble clear in 50.07 seconds.

With another treble clear, Nicola also scooped third place on board her 5 year-old bay stallion, Heartdancer H. This partnership stopped the clock in 50.54 seconds. 

With two further riders also achieving a treble clear, five combinations will now go forward to the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Championship Final.
