The KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Regional Final held on Saturday 23rd June 2012 at Summerhouse Equestrian Centre in Hardwicke, Gloucestershire was the seventh of these Regional Finals and the competition attracted entries from over 50 eligible horse and rider combinations, all hoping to claim their Championship Final qualification.
The class saw riders gather from all over the country with the aim of qualifying for the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Championship Final, which will be held at the Victory Shavings British Showjumping Scope Festival (26th August – 1st September 2012).
From the total number of entries, 49 combinations started in the Regional Final and 16 combinations managed to gain two clear rounds to make it through to the final jump off. In the final jump off, all the remaining combinations were hoping to produce the crucial treble clear required to qualify for the Championship Final.

The overall winner of the Regional Final was 33-year-old Victoria Ashworth from Bicester, Oxfordshire and she won the class on board Nicol Browne’s Bungowla Minnie Magic. Victoria was the only rider who managed to clear the jump off course in under 43.00 seconds and she put in a time of only 42.52 seconds to secure the win.
Second place went to 21-year-old Adrian Whiteway from Yatton, Bristol. Adrian brought Anna Edwards’ gelding, Croklund, home clear over the jump off course in a time of 43.76 seconds to clinch a qualifying spot for the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Championship Final.
