Elizabeth Baker scoops the Equithème Leading Pony Showjumper of the Year Qualifier at The College Equestrian Centre, Keysoe
Thursday 14 June 2018
In a challenging Equithème Leading Pony Showjumper of the Year Qualifier at The College Equestrian Centre in Keysoe, Bedford, Elizabeth Baker rode the only clear round of the class to scoop first place.
Each of the thirty-four starters were keen to pick up one of the three qualification tickets on offer for the Championship Final held at Horse of the Year Show later this year. The technical course saw poles fall and only one clear produced in the first round.
Traveling from Eastry, Kent, 16 year-old Elizabeth Baker put in the winning performance on board Adams Fancy, a 13 year-old chestnut gelding owned by Piers Hammond. This combination kept a cool head to produce the only clear of the competition, crossing the finish line in 100.52 seconds.
The riders and ponies that finished in first to fourth took home the chance to compete in the Equithème National 148cm Championship at the British Showjumping National Championships.
