Claudia Moore and Holly Truelove are victorious in the Charles Britton Equestrian Construction Winter JA Classic Qualifiers at Arena UK

The 2019 Charles Britton Equestrian Construction Winter JA Classic Qualifiers headed to the East Midlands this weekend. The qualifiers were held at Arena UK in Grantham, Lincolnshire during the 148cm Pony Premier Show.

The qualifiers took place over two days and saw all riders from all over the UK come forward with the hopes of securing a top three qualifying place for the prestigious Charles Britton Equestrian Construction Winter JA Classic Championship, which will take place at SouthView Competition & Training Centre in Cheshire across the weekend of the 6th – 7th April 2019.

Claudia Moore from Brentwood, Essex repeated her win from SouthView Equestrian Centre in February when she took the top spot in Saturday’s qualifier on board Katrina Moore’s Elando Van Roshoeve on whom Claudia has enjoyed plenty of success with over the past two years.

Claudia crossed the final finish line in 33.67 seconds edging ahead of Cheshire’s Madison Heath and Flavia, a 9 year-old British-bred mare owned by Sarah Williams who finished 0.04 seconds behind in 33.71 seconds. Third place was awarded to Lila Bremner and Tessa Bremner’s Lapislazuli, a 9 year-old Belgian-bred who only stepped up to this level last month. They crossed the finish line in 36.06 seconds.

Charles Britton Equestrian Construction Winter JA Classic Qualifier – Sunday 3rd March 2019

Twenty-eight combinations came forward to compete in Sunday’s qualifier and it was Holly Truelove from Brigg, South Humberside that claimed the win aboard Barrie Truelove’s Rexter D’Or, a 14 year-old Irish-bred stallion on whom Holly gained her qualifying ticket on at SouthView Equestrian Centre back in February.

Just ten of the initial starters produced a first round clear over course designer Neil Foster’s eleven fence-track with only three progressing on to the second jump-off.

Holly, who is in her final year on ponies, produced one of two treble clears and crossed the finish line in 34.13 seconds. Tatiane Mauree and Horseabout Zibu who were hot off the back of their previous Winter JA Classic Qualifier win at Morris Equestrian Centre in February produced the second double clear earning them the runners up spot after crossing the finish line in 34.59 seconds. Claudia Moore was the only other competitor to make it through to the final jump-off, and she took third place with Delflip when they finished on four faults in a time of 35.52 seconds.
