Christopher Smith takes top spot in the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Second Round at North Cumbria Area Show

The North Cumbria Area Show at Greenlands Equestrian Centre, Carlisle played host to this week’s Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Second Round and it was Christopher Smith who claimed victory.  

With two direct qualifying tickets on offer for the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Championship Final at Horse of the Year Show in October, each of the thirty-five starters had their sights set on producing a treble clear. The first two rounds over a technical course designed by Rafael Suarez saw just five combinations left to battle it out in the final jump off.

Christopher Smith from Hyde in Cheshire shot straight in to first place on board Emily Whiteside’s 8 year-old bay stallion, Warriors Glory. This pair held their nerve as they headed into the five horse jump off to deliver a treble clear in 44.93 seconds.

Taking home second place was Douglas Duffin from Dollar, Clackmannanshire and Pyjama Jack, a 9 year-old bay gelding owned by Fiona Horne. This partnership left all the fences standing in a time of 46.22 seconds.

With the top two taking the direct qualifying tickets for the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Championship Final, the combinations in third to fifth took home the chance to compete at the British Showjumping National Championships.
