Kent riders dominate the Equissage Discovery Second Round.
Limes Farm Equestrian Centre Ltd in Kent, hosted an Equissage Discovery Second Round at the weekend. With the weather holding out the competitors fought it out the for the sole qualification ticket for the Cushionbed British Showjumping Scope Festival.
Out of the eight combinations that made it though to the first jump off only three jumped clear allowing them to jump again. First to go in the jump off was Bexley based Carly Purves riding Rebecca Dighton’s fourteen year old chestnut mare Cherri Amore. Carly jumped a very quick time but with an unfortunate fence down left the door open for the remaining two competitors. The second rider in, Pippa Goddard from Canterbury took advantage of seeing Carly’s round. Riding the six year old chestnut mare Diamonte Darco owned by Caroline Phillips and Guy Williams, Pippa rode a steady clear guaranteeing second place. This put the pressure on the remaining competitor Julian Mincher to jump clear in a quicker time for the win but Chatham based Julian didn’t let the pressure get to him. Using his vast experience Julian rode Sarah Rutherford’s five year old bay mare Batavia T clear in a time of 42.57 seconds. This took the top spot and the only Cushionbed British Showjumping Scope Festival qualification, with Pippa taking second position and Carly third.
