Robert Murphy scoops the win in the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Second Round at REC Arenas
Tuesday 14 May 2019
This year’s Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Second Rounds kicked off at REC Arenas at Richmond Equestrian Centre in North Yorkshire and Robert Murphy was crowned the eventual winner.
There were two direct qualifying tickets on offer for the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Championship Final at Horse of the Year Show in October and each of the forty-eight starters set their sights on producing a treble clear. Course designer Rafael Suarez set the competitors a good challenge to get the numbers down to eleven for the second round and five for the third and final round.
Robert Murphy from Preston, Lancashire produced three fantastic rounds of jumping on Highcross Violet, an 8 year-old grey mare owned by Elizabeth Jackson and Peter Murphy. In doing so, he took the win with a treble clear in 37.90 seconds and bagged his place at Horse of the Year Show.
The top two combinations secured their place in the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Championship Final at Horse of the Year Show and the top five took home the chance to compete in the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Masters at the British Showjumping National Championships.
