Norfolk’s Laura Newson leads the Nupafeed Supplements Senior Discovery Second Round at Houghton International Horse Trials

Watched by an eager crowd at Houghton International Horse Trials in Kings Lynn, Norfolk, Laura Newson jumped in to first place in the Nupafeed Supplements Senior Discovery Second Round hosted by the Norfolk Showjumping Club on Saturday.

With a treble clear the goal of each and every rider as this would book a place in the Nupafeed Supplements Senior Discovery Championship Final, which will be held during the British Showjumping National Championships in August, a competitive class unfolded.

Just five competitors took their place in the jump off after producing a double clear across the first two rounds, leading to a nail biting final round where all eyes fell on the all-important clock to decide the winner.

Local rider Laura Newson from Norwich, Norfolk gave the winning performance on board Gemma Wiffen’s 8 year-old bay gelding, E Brightwood Dorado. This pair really put their foot down to produce their treble clear a whopping 11.21 seconds ahead of the competition, crossing the finish line in 41.23 seconds.

Scooping second place was Chloe Coward from Peterborough, Cambridgeshire riding her own 5 year-old grey gelding, H Blokx. This combination took a slower line to ensure they finished with a treble clear in 52.44 seconds.

Taking home third place was Abigail Richards from Attleborough, Norfolk with her 11 year-old dark bay gelding Mulvin on the Ball. This partnership jumped the final treble clear of the class in a time of 58.54 seconds.

These three combinations will now go forward to the Nupafeed Supplements Senior Discovery Championship Final.
