Forty-six competitors tackled the Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Second Round at Pyecombe Horse Show in West Sussex on Saturday and it was Robyn Woodward who emerged victorious.
Every rider was aiming to secure one of the two coveted Horse of the Year Show tickets on offer for this October’s Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Championship Final and after two competitive rounds, an eighteen horse jump off unfolded.
Sixteen year-old Robyn Woodward made her journey from Colchester, Essex worthwhile when she claimed the top spot with Rudgeway Maestro, a 12 year-old grey gelding owned by Robert Woodward. Continuing their form from the first two rounds, Robyn and her ride went on to deliver another accurate round to finish with a treble clear in 31.95 seconds.
The riders and ponies that finished in third to ninth took home the chance to compete in the Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Masters at the British Showjumping National Championships.
