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