North East Jumpers Lead the Way

Article excerpt

NORTH East show jumpers dominated proceedings at this year's CashJumping finals at Netley Hall Equestrian Centre in Shropshire.

A strong contingent of horses, ponies and riders from Bowes Manor Equestrian Centre, near Birtley, went down to the four-day championships after qualifying at regional events.

And out of the 38 championship final classes taking place, 24 of them were won by riders from Bowes Manor, who come home with over PS2,500 in prize money.

Holly Gair had an incredibly successful competition, winning seven championships and PS700. And other riders won more than one title, including Helen Swailes, Leah Harrison, Chloe Bonney, Chloe Bailey, Beth Miles, and Jessie Brown.

Two of the other titles on offer - the junior 90 and 1m championship finals - went to Cleveland show jumper Morgan Gallagher.

CashJumping was set up a few years ago to encourage more people, especially at grassroots level, to take up the sport of show jumping.

There are a number of venues in the North East offer CashJumping, including weekly competitions at Bowes Manor Equestrian Centre. Other centres offering CashJumping include Leamside Equestrian Centre, West Park, and Seagold Centurian.

And this year there were CashJumping classes at the Scope Festival in Staffordshire, with Beth Miles and Chloe Bailey both winning classes. The North East branch of CashJumping held its annual prize giving night at the Chiltern Country Club last night.
