The Jump X Challenge moved out to the Laurel View all-weather arena and for some competitors this was a big enough challenge without the X-fence to deal with as well.
Taking the course in their stride and riding the X-fence to their best advantage in the 50cm class was winner Ellis Platt-Lea on Cree. The blue ribbon went to Lorraine Irwin and Rab, who were a shade slower over the course.
Missy and Lauren Carville took their first win over the 60cm course, with Kendal Smith and Silver in their first competition claiming second. It was first again for Lauren Carville and Missy over the 70cm fences after using the X-fence to clear the four faults picked up over the course. Runner up went to Adrian Cherry and Lhiram.
Kerry Patton and Sunny glowed when they earned the eighties red ribbon, while it was second place for Cathrine Henderson on Betty.
Catherine Henderson and Betty upgraded their rosette to red over the 90cm course, leaving Fairy Lodge Gold and Alison Larkham in second place.
A Derby Day is planned for Sunday, August 7, while on September 11 there will be jumping and more at the end of summer show.
