Guy Williams Speeds to Victory in the Redpost Equestrian Senior Foxhunter Second Round at Hickstead.

The Al Shira'aa Hickstead Derby Meeting hosted the Redpost Equestrian Senior Foxhunter second Round, with 62 horses vying for victory in the prestigious championship qualifier. The competition was fierce as riders aimed to jump all three rounds of competition to come out on top.

Out of the 62 entrants, 28 successfully navigated the challenging first round, earning their spots in the second round. The intensity only escalated from there, with 17 of these talented pairs making it into the highly anticipated jump-off.

The jump-off kicked off with an exciting performance by Guy Williams on his own Uncle Braun DK Z. This seven-year-old bay gelding, guided by Williams, set an incredible pace, completing the course in an impressive 42.62 seconds. Their time set a benchmark that proved unbeatable, securing the top spot for Williams.

In second place was Jay Halim on his own Midnight. Halim and Midnight also delivered a flawless performance, finishing the jump-off with a clean sheet. However, their time of 44.85 seconds was 2.23 seconds slower than Williams, placing them just shy of the victory.

The final triple clear of the day came from Adam Ellery riding his own MC Gregor TN. As the penultimate rider to take on the course, Ellery pushed hard to achieve a clear round, stopping the clock at 45.61 seconds. This impressive performance earned them a well-deserved third place.

Looking ahead, the excitement continues with the next Redpost Equestrian Senior Foxhunter Second Round scheduled to take place at the Scottish Summer Extravaganza on 4th July.
