Jonathan Egmore wins the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Second Round at Houghton International Horse Trials

 

Watched by an eager crowd at Houghton International Horse Trials in Kings Lynn, Norfolk, Jonathan Egmore jumped in to first place in the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Second Round hosted by the Norfolk Showjumping Club on Saturday.

A keen field of horses and riders set out with the aim of securing a place in the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Championship Final which is to be held at the British Showjumping National Championships in August. With a treble clear in their sights, ten combinations went through to the final jump off and it was up to the all-important clock to decide the winner.

Local rider Jonathan from Diss, Norfolk rode Nicola Witney’s 6 year-old dapple grey mare, Cambola Des Fontaines straight into first place. Proving to be a consistent pairing for a place in the jump off, this combination picked up the pace to deliver another clean round to take the win in 41.20 seconds.  

With another five combinations also achieving a treble clear, a total of six combinations now go forward to the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Second Rounds Final.
