Ben Walker secures the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Second Round at The College Equestrian Centre, Keysoe
Friday 08 June 2018
As a midweek treat, The College Equestrian Centre in Keysoe, Bedford held the next of the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Second Rounds and it was Ben Walker who secured top spot with the only treble clear of the class.
With two direct qualifying tickets on offer for the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Championship Final at Horse of the Year Show in October, each of the fifty-two starters were looking to produce a treble clear. The technical course saw poles fall during the first two rounds, leaving just five competitors to go forward to the final jump-off.
Ben Walker from Leamington Spa, Warwickshire rode three solid rounds on board Genius Contender, a 7 year-old grey gelding owned by Brendon Stud for first place. With the first two rounds offering plenty of challenges, Ben kept his focus to jump yet another clear in the final jump-off in just 45.91 seconds.
With the top two taking the direct qualifying tickets for the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Championship Final, the combinations in third to fifth took home the chance to compete at the British Showjumping National Championships.
