Madison Jamison jumps to victory in Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Second Round at The College Equestrian Centre, Keyose
It was a busy weekend at The College Equestrian Centre in Keysoe, Bedford as they played host to a Pony Premier Show. With a large field of eighty-one starters coming forward to contest the Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Second Round, it was Madison Jamison who proved to be the eventual winner.
With just two Horse of the Year Show tickets on offer for this October’s Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Championship Final, each of the competitors started the class with high aims. In the first two rounds, the course asked some questions of the ponies and riders and left just thirteen to go head to head against the clock in the final jump-off.
Sixteen year-old Madison Jamison from Knuzden, Blackburn gave the winning performance on board Flavia, a 7 year-old brown gelding owned by Nicola Jamison. This partnership rode the fastest treble clear of the class stopping the clock over 3 seconds ahead of their nearest rivals in 41.93 seconds.
Jumping into second place was Faye Sutton, aged 15, from Whitchurch, Shropshire riding Beyond Doubt II a 13 year-old roan gelding owned by Angela Davies. This combination left all the fences standing to claim a treble clear in 45.23 seconds.
The riders and ponies that finished in third to fifth took home the chance to compete in the Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Masters at the British Showjumping National Championships.
