EquestrianClearance.com Senior Newcomers Second Round at Addington Manor Equestrian Centre
Friday 06 July 2012
The EquestrianClearance.com Senior Newcomers Second Rounds continued last week (Tuesday 3rd July 2012) at Addington Manor Equestrian Centre in Buckinghamshire. The class proved to be very popular and was attended by 129 talented horse and rider combinations.
Combinations came from all over the country with the aim of qualifying for the EquestrianClearance.com Senior Newcomers Championship Final, which will be held at the Horse of the Year Show on Wednesday 3rd October 2012.
Up for grabs at this second round were two direct qualifying tickets for the EquestrianClearance.com Senior Newcomers Championship Final and from the total number of starters, only six combinations could produce two clear rounds to make it through into the final jump off. From those six, three then went on to achieve the vital treble clear needed to put them in with a chance of qualifying for the Championship Final.
The winner of this second round was 42-year-old Damien Charles from Oxted, Surrey. Damien won the class on board Andy Rothery’s six-year-old bay mare, Rockmount Alice. The combination produced a faultless treble clear in a time of only 41.44 seconds to clinch the class win and the first HOYS direct qualifying place.
Second place and the second HOYS direct qualifying place went to 35-year-old Phillip Miller from Luton, Bedfordshire. Phillip rode Diana Cornish’s six-year-old bay gelding, Basic, clear over the jump off course in a time of 43.04 seconds.
Just missing out on the Horse of the Year Show qualifications were the combinations in third to fifth. All of these combinations secured their opportunity to compete at the Victory Shavings British Showjumping Scope Festival (26th August – 1st September 2012).
