Devon’s Oliver Tuff storms to victory in the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Second Round at Addington Manor Equestrian Centre
Monday 02 July 2018
At the tender age of just fifteen, Oliver Tuff rode three foot perfect rounds to claim victory in the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Second Round at Addington Manor Equestrian Centre in Buckingham on Sunday.
Each of the starters were keen to take home one of the two direct qualifying tickets on offer for the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Championship Final at Horse of the Year Show in October but a challenging course meant that only six determined starters made it through the first two rounds for a spot in the jump off.
Making the journey from Totnes, Devon worthwhile, Oliver Tuff stormed through three rounds of showjumping to finish in top spot on board Darino B, a 10 year-old bay gelding owned by Justin Tuff. This combination put forward two consistent rounds for their place in the jump off where they really let rip, crossing the finish line in as unbeatable 41.67 seconds.
With the top two taking the direct qualifying tickets for the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Championship Final, the combinations in third to sixth took home the chance to compete at the British Showjumping National Championships.
