Winning day for Emma and Zac

Saturday September 3 saw the second week of Hagans Croft’s Show Jumping Summer Blow Out where there was a dramatic change in weather from the previous week’s competition.

Rain lasted for the duration of the day’s event however this did not dampen competitors spirits as one young competitor did kindly point out that they were in training for the Olympics and that you need to be able to ride in all weathers.

The day started off with the x-poles class where Lily Henderson smiled the whole way round on her lovely chestnut pony Emily, a beautiful double clear round was to be seen and the pair were awarded a rosette and a tub of popcorn to celebrate their efforts.

Onto the 50cm class where Emma Baird and ‘Princess’ secured a double clear and in the fastest time of the whole day - 24.4 seconds.

The pair were delighted with their first place rainbow rosette and a horselyx.

Emma’s winning streak didn’t stop there. She and her second mount ‘Sprite’ went on to win the 70cm accumulator class also.

A successful day out for Emma and her ponies, well done!

The 60cm class saw only three competitors finish on a double clear.

Anna Jackson, Joey

It was down to who completed fences nine to twelve in the fastest time and that was Molly Reid and ‘Little Me’ in a fast time of 24.47 seconds, very well deserved of the top spot. Hot on Molly’s heels was Lucy Baird and ‘Casper’ who finished in a time of 28.72 seconds.

The 60cm Pairs relay saw a niece and auntie combo take on the challenge. The pair already had first place in the bag however they jumped the course with ease and style and kept all poles intact, finishing on a clear score.

The day finished on the 80cm and 90cm classes where placings remained the same for both classes. It was a winning day for Zac Hanna and ‘Tigger’ who jumped their way into first place in both classes. Second place went to Zara Reid and ‘Kingsman Dave’ with third to Sarah Sloan and ‘Beanie’.

Hagans Croft would like to thank everyone who supported their Showjumping Summer Bow Out event and thanks are extended to all the stewards and arena party for making the event run so smoothly.
