Champagne showered on SRSJC’s wonderful season finale for 2015…..
Two massive days of fabulous jumping were highlighted by champagne-sprayed presentations for the tightly contested 1.40m Patersons Plate.
Quicker on the clock, Maddison Stephen and Yalambi’s Cambridge pipped more seasoned competitors to snatch the Plate from Alison (Doog) Rowland (Yalambi’s Carpino Z), Rory Hovell (Tsarina van de Wolfsakker) and Caitlin Bolger (Danzastar) in a thrilling jump off – Maddi and Doog going clear in all three rounds over international course designer, Gavin Chester’s, full-height track.
The win topped off an impressive weekend for Maddi, who also won the EWA Silver Series Qualifier (co-sponsored by The Winter Showjumpers Ball) riding Aveden Indigo, on whom she is currently leading the series. Heath and Sophie Ahmat were also multiple winners, each taking home top prize in three classes (see SRSJC EVENTS – RESULTS for all placings over the weekend).
