Emily Rodney jumps to victory in KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Second Round at Rectory Farm

Delivering a faultless treble clear, Emily Rodney shot in to first place in the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Second Round at Rectory Farm near Cirencester, Gloucestershire.

Each of the seventy-six combinations came forward with their sights firmly set on 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. A treble clear performance over Alison Naylor’s course was the main aim as this would claim a qualification place and what unfolded was a very competitive class.

After two action packed rounds, twenty-nine talented horses and riders were left to go head to head against the clock in the jump-off. Emily Rodney from Dyfed jumped into first place on board her own Miss Saigon Van De Netev Vallei, a 5 year-old bay mare that she has produced herself. This partnership took on the class with a hope of finishing in the top six and after producing two consistently clear rounds to take their place in the jump off, their hopes were high. They went on to deliver another clear round in style in the jump off and they stopped the clock in an unbeatable time of 51.29 seconds.

Emma-Jo Slater from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire claimed second place riding Kim Barzilay’s 7 year-old grey mare, Fielina II. This pair put in a strong challenge as they crossed the finish line with a treble clear in 51.80 seconds.

Third place went to Abbie Shackell from Pilning, Bristol riding her own 8 year-old bay gelding, Okiwi Bay. This combination delivered their treble clear in 52.54 seconds.           

With a further ten riders also achieving a treble clear, thirteen combinations will now go forward to the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Championship Final.
