Adam Taylor scores a one-two in the Nupafeed Supplements Senior Discovery Second Round at Willow Banks Equestrian Centre
Tuesday 07 May 2019
Adam Taylor topped the leader board to take the top two places in the first of this season’s Nupafeed Supplements Senior Discovery Second Rounds at Willow Banks Equestrian Centre in Lincolnshire on Sunday.
Fifty-three combinations started out over course designer Nigel Jess’ twelve fence track and each rider was hoping to secure a place in the Nupafeed Supplements Senior Discovery Championship Final, which will be held during the British Showjumping National Championships in August.
The initial starting field was whittled down as eighteen competitors produced a double clear for a place in the final jump off. As twelve talented partnerships were able to secure a treble clear it was left up to the all-important clock to decide the winner.
Adam Taylor from Newark, Nottinghamshire proved to be on top form taking first place on his own Arko III sired 7 year-old Annabel Z, who crossed the finish line in 33.43 seconds. Adam also piloted Doverla P, an 11 year-old Dutch-bred mare into second place after crossing the line in 33.79 seconds.
With another ten combinations also achieving a treble clear, a total of twelve combinations now go forward to the Nupafeed Supplements Senior Discovery Championship Final.
