Scope BSJA Festival of show jumping 2007

  • Guy Williams and Skip Two Ramiro clinched the final Easibed National 1.40M grand prix. Late drawn in the 14-strong final jump off, Guy produced one of the best rounds of the show to win from Geoff Luckett (Pjort) and Paul Barker (Quinton III).

    “It was a tough challenge, but he’s a big striding horse, and a big jumper so it makes it easier to take strides out and turn up to fences,” said Guy.

    After Birchill Dessy had already earned him the Junior Starspotters title earlier in the week, Oliver Evans gained the biggest win of his career, when Paddy Power clinched the Panthea Dunglenn 148cm Championship.

    Eight came through to the jump off, where the pace was set by pony European team gold medallists Pippa Allen and Spot the Lady. However, some strong riding saw Oliver Evans and Paddy Power emerge the victors.

    “He was a bit spooky in the first round, but everything went to plan in the second. What a way to finish,” said Oliver.

    Another young rider clinching her biggest ever win, was eight-year-old Denver Griffiths who produced a flying round to win the coveted Golden Bears Tiny Tots championship with Castle Merrylegs. The pair produced a blistering gallop throughout to finish ahead of Faye Adams riding Little Poppet.

    “I trust her 100%, so we made our mind up to go for it” said Denver.

    Additional winners on the final day in Bingley Hall were:

    • Peter Flanagan National Junior British Novice Champions – Missy Bo Jangles ridden by Joe Trunkfield
    • The Leonardo Collection National 4 year old champions – Wiarleen ridden by Sally Lane
    • Top Tack Adventurer Champions – Orina ridden by Andrew Davies
