Field House Equestrian in Uttoxeter, Staffordshire hosted the sixth Blue Chip Pony Newcomers second rounds on Sunday 30th June 2013. The second round attracted a total of 51 starting combinations.
Up for grabs at this second round were two direct qualifying tickets for the Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Championship Final at the Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) and all of the starting combinations were aiming to take one of these tickets home.
Of all the starters, 16 combinations made it through into the jump off and they were all aiming to achieve treble clears. Four combinations duly achieved this, which meant that the places were allocated according to the times.
The winner’s spot was taken by 14 year-old Ellie Archdeacon from Cambridgeshire on board Greenacres Bobby, a 10 year-old grey gelding owned by Dionne Walker. Ellie steered Greenacres Bobby cleanly over the jump off fences in 43.33 seconds to achieve a treble clear.
Second was taken by 14 year-old Jessica Hewitt from West Yorkshire. Jessica rode Trevoulter Brenins Treasure, a 7 year-old brown gelding owned by Clare Poskitt. The third clear from this combination was achieved in 44.37 seconds to take a top two finish.
The first two pony and rider combinations, disregarding those already qualified, will qualify for the Horse of the Year Show. The first five, disregarding those already qualified, will qualify for the Alexanders Horseboxes British Showjumping Scope Festival 2013. Ponies and riders that jump a treble clear also qualify for the Alexanders Horseboxes British Showjumping Scope Festival 2013.
