The Zone 23 Jumping Equitation competition was kindly hosted by Dural Pony Club on Sunday 11th September.
Jumping equitation is when the rider and horse are judged on their ability to jointly execute a show jumping round that is well balanced, with a mutual understanding of each other’s needs and abilities and make every aid or change seem effortless. This should reflect their training and ground work. The rider should be effective and sympathetic and have a clear understanding of what the course and tasks are asking of them.
Congratulations to all Arcadia Pony Club riding members participating in the event. Placing for our riding members were as follows:
Champion – Lucy Fretus riding External Influence Reserve Champion – Molly Breatnach riding Church Hill
