Spring is in the air and jumping on the Laurel View calendar

Laurel View SJ BR Farm
DOUBLE: Benjamin Gilmour and ‘Katie’ won the 90cm class before doing the same in the metre class at Laurel View’s January Jump Start. (FW10-538NN)

THE first Sunday in January saw the Laurel View indoors spring into life after the holiday period with their January Jump Start. With very strong competition in most of the classes, as competitors aimed to keep the hooves away from the poles to score a double clear and a couple of pounds cashback. This made for a bright and positive start to the 2019 Laurel View Competition Calendar.

Again this year, the 70cm class was a qualifier for the Pony Club Area 17, 12 and under competition, while the 80cm and 90cm provided a qualifying opportunity for the Dengie Debut and Winter League Area competitions respectively. All the best to those that earned their qualification at the Laurel View leg and here’s hoping things go well at the Area final.

80CM: Right, Over the 80cm course, it was Katelyn Irvine and ‘O’Hara’s Dream’ that took first place at the January Jump Start at Laurel View. (FW10-537NN)

Photos of this competition were captured by the Equi-Tog photographer as usual and can be viewed on their Facebook page or just send an email to info@equi-tog.com

Wednesday evening show jumping is due to start up again on March 20, only a short six-week league this Spring, so don’t miss out on getting in on the action and to start clocking up points on the league scoreboard.
