Friday 29 June 2012
The KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Regional Final held on Saturday 23rd June 2012 at The Jays Stud in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk was the eighth of these Regional Finals and the competition attracted 25 starting 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 starters, 12 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.
From those who made it into the final jump off, six combinations went on to produce the required immaculate treble clear, securing their Final place for August. The overall winner of the Regional Final was 28-year-old Lisa De Clerk from Thetford, Norfolk. Lisa won the class on board Tania Bullard’s, Bullards Foreign Money. Lisa produced a blistering round to be the only rider to clear the jump off course in less than 40.00 seconds and she put in a time of 36.75 seconds to secure the win.
Second place went to 18-year-old Amy Halstead from Maidenhead, Berkshire. Amy rode Penelope Grimster’s, Amadeus XVI, home clear over the jump off course in a time of 41.24 seconds to clinch a qualifying spot for the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Championship Final.
Third place went to 45-year-old Lyn Chorlton from Grantham, Lincolnshire and she rode her own Ballyengland Globe Trotter clear over the seven fence jump off in a time of 44.01 seconds.
