It was Kent based showjumper, Scarlet Clark- Murphy aboard the 18 year old grey gelding, Ballyleak Silver who was the eventual winner of the All Horse Magazine 80cm Pony Open. The class had an overwhelming amount of entries which led to a great start to the competition on day two of the British Showjumping National Championships 2019. With 106 entries, it was an extremely quick class with the winning time being under 22 seconds in the jump off phase.
Ballyleak Silver produced a stylish round in record time having produced a text book clear round with some hand brake turns in the jump off. Scarlet, aged 13, has had the ride of Ballyleak Silver for the past two and a half years, and in this time has transformed a riding school pony into a show jumping champion. “I said to my mum before I went into the ring I need to get under 22 seconds, but he doesn’t usually go that quick- so it was all or nothing.”
The winning combination will be contesting the Pony British Novice Championship Final this afternoon. In second place was Grace Dew with Coshla Mid- Knight,and in third was Millie Mackey with Knickerbocker Glory.
