On Sunday the 12th July at Hargate Equestrian Centre, Zonnekoning II secured his fourth double clear British Novice for the second rounds in 2010.
A delighted Richard commented " He has done really well to get them out of the way so quickly and we can now look forward to the second rounds" "He greatly deserves to have achieved this because of all the effort he has put in"
On saturday 23rd May at Hargate Equestrian Centre Vamos made her return to competition, after a her holiday with a bang.
Having had a rest after the Blue chip championships, Vamos competed along side Delaya in the 1.10m Amateur championship qualifier. Both horses made it through to the jump off, but sadly a little mistake , resulting in a fence being lowered, cost Delaya a quailfying place however last to go on vamos, Richard jumped a neat double clear to secure 4th place and therefore qualifying her for the final.
A surprised Richard commented " Delaya was really unlucky today, but jumping really well. As this was Vamos's first show back, I didn't want to go to fast, but just give her a nice ride round and being last to go I knew that good a clear would be enough to qualify and I wouldn't have to do anything else"
"We didn't put her in the class with qualifying in mind, we just wanted to give her a nice show back, qualifying was just a big bonus!"
Delaya Quafilies Ken Beeston Final
On Wednesday 13th May, Richard and Delaya were at Hargate Equestrian and a good solid performance saw them claim a qualifying place for the Ken Beeston Final to be held at the BSJA Area 21 show later in the summer.
A delighted Richard said " Delaya did really well, she has learnt a lot from her trip to wales and this is proof of it and hopefully things will continue in the same manner from this point on"
Vamos Does It Again!
On Wednesday 11th March 2009, at Solihull Riding Club Vamos was in fine form again winning the newcomers class.
"I'm really pleased with her" said Richard " As far as I Know she has never been to Solihull and it is spooky in there" " I wasn't expecting her to do anything, we just wanted a nice ride round to give her experience of different places and jumps, so this was not expected"
This is a good result for the pair going forward to the future and forming a good partnership.
