Ronnie Lee Jones takes the Connolly’s RED MILLS Senior Newcomers Second Round at Bicton Arena

The Connolly’s RED MILLS Senior Newcomers Second Rounds took place at Bicton Arena’s Summer Spectacular Show on Sunday and it was Ronnie Lee Jones who clinched the win.

With only two qualifying tickets up for grabs for the Connolly’s RED MILLS Senior Newcomers Championship Final, which will be held during Horse of the Year Show in October, all combinations were aiming to cross the finish line with a treble clear. From an initial starting field of seventy-eight, only four combinations went on to produce a treble clear which meant that the allocation of the qualification places came down to the clock.

Ronnie Lee Jones from Dunmow in Essex steered Ruth Dowie’s Interstar B, a 6-year-old Dutch bred gelding by I’m Special De Muze, into the top spot after producing an immaculate treble clear in 40.67 seconds. Nicole Pavitt couldn’t quite reach the Ronnie’s time aboard Matt Pike’s Southend, winners of the Senior Foxhunter Second Round on the previous day, but they claimed the second ticket on offer.

Josh Hutchins claimed third place with the Billy Stud’s Billy Alpen; fourth place and the final treble clear went to Alice Watson and her own Cloud No.9 whilst fifth place was awarded to Hayley Webster and Caroline Ross’ Cassilanda H Z.

The top two combinations secured their place in the Connolly’s RED MILLS Senior Newcomers Championship Final at Horse of the Year Show and the top five took home the chance to compete in the Connolly’s RED MILLS Senior Newcomers Masters at the British Showjumping National Championships.
