Monday 19 April 2021
Dean Valley Equestrian Centre played host to the first SEIB Winter Novice Qualifier of the season on Saturday and forty-five combinations came forward to high hopes, but it was Allan Birch who took the win on board Vicky Tennant’s Bold Adventure.
Seventeen of the initial starters jumped clear in the first round keeping the pressure on for an exciting jump off. Keeping his cool, Allan guided the 8 year-old mare to a stylish double clear as the pair crossed the finish line in just 36.22 seconds.
