Horse & Hound Senior Foxhunter Second Round at Ingliston Equestrian Centre
Monday 23 July 2012
The Horse & Hound Senior Foxhunter Second Rounds continued over the weekend (Saturday 21st July 2012) with the ninth second round held at Ingliston Equestrian Centre in Bishopton, Renfrewshire, Scotland. The class was attended by 39 talented hand eligible horse and rider combinations.
All of the combinations started the second round with the aim of obtaining their qualifying place for the Horse & Hound Senior Foxhunter Championship Final, which will be held at the Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) on Thursday 4th October 2012.
Up for grabs at this second round were two direct qualifying tickets for the Horse & Hound Senior Foxhunter Championship Final at the Horse of the Year Show (HOYS). Following two closely fought rounds of competition, nine combinations achieved the double clear required to get them through into the final jump off and in the final jump off, four combinations achieve the crucial treble clear required to put them in with a chance of qualifying for the Championship Final.
The winner of this second round was 16-year-old Jake Saywell from Newark, Nottinghamshire. Jake won the class on board Guy Williams’ seven-year-old bay gelding, Farinelli Van De Zeshoek. The combination produced a flawless treble clear in a time of only 38.18 seconds to clinch the class win and the first HOYS direct qualifying place.
Second place and the second HOYS direct qualifying place went to 25-year-old Danielle Jolliffe from Atherton, Manchester. Danielle rode her own eight-year-old chestnut gelding, Erasmus Vd Heffinck, clear over the jump off course in a time of 38.44 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 Plevin British Showjumping Scope Festival (26th August – 1st September 2012).
