A busy weekend of show jumping at Scottish National Equestrian Centre in Broxburn, West Lothian last weekend drew a large number of competitors with many coming to contest the The Dodson & Horrell National Amateur Second Rounds.
Fifty-five combinations came forward to compete in the 0.95m and 1.10m Second Rounds all hoping to qualify for the Dodson & Horrell National Amateur Championships which are held at Aintree Equestrian Centre in Liverpool on the 14– 19 November.
In the 95cm second round class Lucy Rennie was unstoppable on Jim Wilmer’s 12 year-old bay gelding Parkhill Legacy, with Natasha Brown and Goldie I taking second place and Isla Jane Stewart in 3rd with Bruntons Rising Star. In the hotly contested 1.10m second round class only three combinations make it through to the final jump off. Picking up the pace to take 1st place was Lucinda Stewart from South Ayrshire who piloted her 11 year-old bay gelding Glow DK to post an unbeatably fast double clear in 53.56 seconds. Lucinda featured in this year’s EQy magazine as one of our riders tipped to be a ‘Star of the Future’.

Lucy Rennie this time had to be content with the second qualification spot again on Parkhill Legacy. This combination delivered the final double clear of the class as they crossed the finish line in 58.32 seconds.
