Area 12 Senior Novice & Intermediate Show Jumping, KSEC

Having already been postponed due to Storm Dennis, the weather at today's show jumping competition was only marginally better!

With the wind howling and the rain coming down, team stalwarts, Amanda Holmes and Naomi Kaye, kept flying the flag for BKRC!

It was a little alarming to see the ground pole of the warm up jump get lifted off the ground by the wind as Amanda and Moiner approached!

Going first for BKRC, Amanda and Moiner did a lovely round with just an unlucky 4 faults. Naomi followed on the very normally consistent Jazz, and surprised us all when coming to the end of a really smart round, he just point blank refused to jump one of the fences.

However, the day was a mixed bag for all competitors, some jumping double clears and some having rather awful falls. All riders and horses were thankfully OK, but it's never easy to be the rider in after a rather shocking horse tumble, so Amanda Holmes and Moiner did well to put it out of their minds and continue to jump a solid round, a slight clip on the first fence just costing them 4 faults. ​So whilst there were no frillies today, we were really proud of our members for representing the club in horrid weather conditions and given the number of horse and rider falls, we were particularly glad to see them both home safely!
