Essex’s Ronnie Jones claims KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Second Round win at Houghton Hall Equestrian Centre

The KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Second Round at Houghton Hall Equestrian Centre in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire was won in fine style by Ronnie Jones who secured victory with three confident clear rounds.  

With a keen starting line-up of fifty-seven combinations, the contest for a place in the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Championship Final which is to be held at the British Showjumping National Championships in August was a fierce one. With the hope of achieving a sought after treble clear over David Ackland’s course, each competitor set about the class with determination.

Ronnie Jones from Dunmow, Essex claimed his place in the twenty-six horse jump off after producing two clears. Riding Ruth Dowie’s 7-year-old skewbald mare, Derawley Lady, Ronnie picked up speed to cross the finish line on a treble clear in an unbeatable time of 41.06 seconds.

Seventeen-year-old Adele Rand from Haverhill, Suffolk was delighted to jump into second place on board her own Calypso Blue. This 6-year-old grey gelding has been produced slowly by Adele and they took the challenge of their first Senior British Novice Second Round in their stride. This young partnership finished with a treble clear in a 42.94 seconds.

Third place went to Benjamin Cornwall from Clifton, Nottinghamshire riding Andrea Cox’s 7-year-old grey mare Minim E. This pair stopped the clock on a treble clear in 44.37 seconds.

With a further eight riders also achieving a treble clear, eleven combinations will now go forward to the KBIS Insurance Senior British Novice Championship Final.
