Suffolk’s Saffron Baker Wins Dodson & Horrell 0.85m National Amateur Second Round at Codham Park Equestrian

Suffolk’s Saffron Baker Wins Dodson & Horrell 0.85m National Amateur Second Round at Codham Park Equestrian

 Codham Park Equestrian in Braintree, Essex was the venue for two Dodson & Horrell National Amateur Second Rounds, both of which were held on Sunday. Competitors came forward for both a 0.85m and a 0.95m second round and each starter was aiming to pick up one of the twelve qualifying tickets on offer in each second round for a place at the Dodson & Horrell National Amateur Championships next month 18th – 22nd November at Aintree Equestrian Centre in Liverpool.

Solid performances from a number of competitors saw a ten horse jump off unfold and the win came from the very last combination to go. Seventeen year-old Saffron Baker from Ipswich, Suffolk used the draw to her advantage, scooping victory on board Ann Withey’s 13 year-old bay mare, Loulabelle II.

Having seen seven double clears produced before her, Saffron knew that only an accurate quick round would do and she duly delivered. Saffron and Loulabelle posted their double clear in 35.06 seconds, shaving just 0.38 of a second off the time of their nearest rivals.

Kerrie Goodwin from St. Albans, Hertfordshire took second place with her own 19 year-old chestnut gelding, Roscoes Golani after they clocked up their double clear in 35.44 seconds. This saw them finish as only other combination with a double clear in under 36.00 seconds.

Young showjumper, 13 year-old Alice Casburn, from Norwich, Norfolk rounded off the podium places on Caroline Casburn’s 9 year-old bay mare Rhydfendigaid Groten Goch. They produced their double clear in 36.73 seconds.
