Charlotte Ash (14) from Dalton, Tyne & Wear headed a very competitive Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Showjumping Masters at the Alexanders Horseboxes British Showjumping Scope Festival on Tuesday 27th August 2013.
Charlotte beat off the challenge from the other forty-five competitors by finding the shortest route in the jump off with the 8 year-old grey gelding Killack King owned by Shirley Ash. Charlotte has been competing on Killack King since January 2012. “He’s such a character” she said.
Charlotte’s quick time in the jump off of 33.56 seconds proved to be unbeatable, with her nearest rival finishing over two seconds behind her.
The first four horse and rider combinations, disregarding those already qualified, will qualify for the Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Championship at the Horse of the Year Show, which takes place from the 9th – 13th October 2013 at the Birmingham NEC.
