Lauren and John Boy qualify for Newcomers Scope
Lauren and John Boy (Waltons Top Flight) jumped the class of their life today. It was the second round Newcomers with 107 competitors. The first two qualify for The Horse of the Year Show and top five go through to the Scope Championships so competition was fierce! As Lauren went in she edged him on, ‘He isn’t listening today’, she commented on her way in but he obviously had his own agenda as he produced a foot perfect clear round, one of only about twenty. He followed that with another clear which put him in the final jump off with just nine others. Up went the jumps again, mum could hardly watch, some were up to 1.40m. He jumped well but incurred 8 faults which still put them 5th, such was the difficulty of the course. This qualifies them for Scope where apparently they have another crack at HOYS. We’d better look in rule book! All very happy in Turville
The pair went to day four of the Addington Classic Summer Show on 9th July and got another double clear Foxhunter and were placed 3rd. John Boy is a little star!
