Darwin III dominates the Bridgend County Show
KBIS Insurance British Novice Second Round
Bridgend County Show held at Pencoed College in Mid Glamorgan saw thirteen starters in the KBIS Insurance British Novice second round that was held yesterday. With four combinations jumping double clear to make it in to the final jump off they were all out to get that winning spot and take home the Cushionbed British Showjumping Scope Festival qualification ticket.
Drawn first to go in the jump off was Wiltshire based Claire Chambers partnering her own six year old bay mare Meacham Fatal Attraction. This combination jumped a very quick round coming home in 36.26 seconds but lowering one pole on the way round left them with four faults.
The second fence in the jump off proved to be the bogey fence and it wasn’t until last to go Danielle Hughes went in that it stayed up. Seventeen year old local rider Danielle from Porth was riding her mother’s (Michelle) eight year old chestnut gelding Darwin III. Having seen the others jump Danielle knew that all was needed was a clear round to take the win. Keeping her cool Danielle did just that and completed the jump off clear in a time of 40.69 seconds giving her the win and qualifying for the Cushionbed British Showjumping Scope Festival.
