Crofton Manor Equestrian Centre in Fareham, Hampshire hosted a Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Second Round on Saturday 31st May 2014 and it proved to be popular with competitors, attracting a total of fifty-seven eligible 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 and all of the starting combinations went with the aim of taking one of these tickets home.
From all the starters, thirteen combinations went on to produce two clear rounds to make it through into the final jump off and six combinations then went on to produce a treble clear.
Chloe Reynolds (15) from Chard, Somerset took victory in this second round on the 9 year-old coloured mare Kayleigh’s Star, owned by Sophie Digby. They were the penultimate combination to go in the jump off and after producing their third clear in 44.09 seconds, they ensured that the top spot belonged to them.
Second place was taken by 16 year-old Faye Adams from Halesowen, West Midlands who was competing on her mother Julie’s and Alison Brooks’ 8 year-old brown mare Rainbows Mocha. The pair secured their treble clear in a time of 44.66 seconds to take their place in the top two.
