Essex’s Courtney Young secures the Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Second Round at The College Equestrian Centre, Keysoe

The College Equestrian Centre in Keysoe played host to a well-supported Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Second Round on Sunday and it was Courtney Young who jumped to victory with a cracking treble clear.

 

Every of the seventy-one riders was determined to secure the one of the two coveted Horse of the Year Show tickets on offer for this October’s Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Championship Final and after two competitive rounds, a nail biting eight horse jump off unfolded.

 

Fifteen year-old Courtney Young from Basildon, Essex tackled the newly shortened course in fine style on board Marie Clark’s 6 year-old bay gelding Neil 55. This pair were not fazed by the task ahead as they flew to the top of the leader board with a speedy clear in 40.79 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.
