British Riding Clubs Area 13 Winter Show Jumping Qualifier.


We put forward a total of 5 teams, one senior intermediate, two senior individual intermediates, one junior intermediate, two senior novice teams and one junior novice team.

The day started at 9.30am, and our intermediate team Horsham Horrors, consisting of Lindsey Dumper, Hayley Vowels, Becky Lloyd and Caroline Exley, were the second team to jump. Then followed our two individuals, Candice Dunlop and Jamie Meg Cholwich. Everyone jumped super rounds, with the team finishing on a total of 12faults putting them second but sadly not quite qualifying, however Candice qualified as an individual, well done to both her, Jamie and Becky who produced good clears. Candice was also third individually, Jamie 4th and Becky 5th.

We then had our junior intermediate team of Ella Bubb, Amelia Bubb, Sara Holden and Olivia Watts. They all jumped brilliantly resulting in a team win, and an individual win for Amelia and second for Ella.

Then it was time for our two senior novice teams, Horsham Hippies ( Charlotte Ricca-Smith Amanda Croft-Pearman Helena Dunlevey and Jess Wilkinson) and Horsham Happies (Kate van der Mark, Suzie Artlett, Elaine Ticehurst and Becky Lloyd) Both teams jumped super rounds, finishing with the Happies first and qualifying and the Hippies second!!! We then finished with our junior novice team Olivia Watts, Sara Holden and Megan Speers who jumped brilliantly as a team of three managing to all jump clear and win with a qualification too!!!

So a fantastic day for Horsham Riding Club, thanks to Jacqueline Oxley and Megan Spears for helping and Three Counties for running the event, but a huge thank you to all the clubs representatives, you were all turned out beautifully, behaved impeccably and were all great fun, thank you!!!!

The new chef d'equip!!!
