Abbi Jackson from Sandy, Bedfordshire on her mother Vikki’s 10 year-old bay gelding Christopher Robin IV scooped the victory in the Dodson & Horrell 0.85m National Amateur Second Round held during the Arena UK Festival of Showjumping in Grantham, Lincolnshire.

With qualifying for the Dodson & Horrell National Amateur Championships at Aintree Equestrian Centre in Liverpool (18th – 22nd November) a priority, each competitor was focused on taking one of the twelve direct qualifying places on offer in each class.

Abbi and Christopher Robin IV beat twenty-seven other combinations to take the top spot in this second round. They used a late draw in the jump off to their advantage, posting an accurate and fast round to finish up with a double clear in 33.14 seconds and this was to prove good enough for the win.
