British Riding Clubs' National Novice Indoor Show Jumping Championships 2003
Sponsored by Natural Animal Feeds

The finals of the NAF sponsored Novice Indoor Show Jumping Championship took place on 26 and 27 April and provided an excellent show case for BRC's talented novice riders. The course, designed and built by Nick Staines, ensured a suitable challenge for the finalists. The senior day fielded 34 qualifying teams and 24 junior teams on the Sunday.

Tracey Lloyd, PR & Marketing Manager for Natural Animal Feeds said "NAF are delighted to sponsor this extremely popular Championship. It's wonderful to be involved in a competition like this, run specifically for novice riders where the facilities and organisation are first class. The number of teams competing were up on last year, and while the competition was hot, the sense of team spirit was particularly apparent, creating a great atmosphere throughout the whole weekend. I'm sure everyone, horses, riders and support teams, had a really great time which makes it all the more rewarding for NAF to sponsor the competition."

Wrekin North Riding Club
Outright team champions were Wrekin North RC, who guaranteed their number one slot with a clean slate in both rounds and a fantastic performance from each of their team members. The team jumped clear in the first and second rounds ensuring entry into the jump off for the individual title. Consolidating an excellent run of form, Selina Allen on Top Gun took the individual title in addition to the Wrekin North Team Championship Title. Selina and Top Gun won the Novice Show Jumping Individual Championships at Lincoln in September of last year and we can all expect to see bigger and better things from this duo. The Wrekin North team were: Selina Allen, Top Gun; Sharon Hollister, Circus Sable; Heather Davies, Foxy Lady; Chris Gwilliam, Hillside Chloe.

Mid Devon Riding Club
The Mid Devon junior team made sure their long journey was worthwhile with a victory in the junior team championships. Finishing on a score of just four faults the team were delighted with their win. The team comprised of: Amanda Friend, Merlins Magic; Katherine Pink, Ridgeway Magic Moment; Lizzie Luxton, Coversham Statesman; Stacey Littlejohns, Mugli.

Torfaen Riding Club
