in Hartpury Equine College / United Kingdom
An outstanding 4 days of competition has come to a close with some fantastic showjumping on offer. Top performer William Funnell has had a good weekend competing as he won the Hartpury Area Trial 1.50m on Saturday morning. William and Billy Diamo finished 3rd fastest overall with 53.15 seconds but, crucially, performed the only double clear to win the £1,000.00 first place prize.
Amy Ovens and F-Palma won the Baileys Horse Feeds National 1.40m Open, finished in lightning quick time just under 4 seconds in front of second place Carron Nicol & Finnegan D.
Adam Ellery and Bonmahon Blue Shaker took the win in the Nupafeed Supplements Senior Discovery - Second Round ahead of a very talented group of riders. Their time of 34.86 seconds eclipsed the rest of the class by over 2 seconds with Marcella Marie Johnstone & Killea Storm finishing in second place, followed very closely by Chloe Reynolds & Quantify with only half a second between them.
