World Class Showjumping Performance Manager Di Lampard commented on the afternoon’s competition:
“I thought the course was really good. Right from the first jump to the last oxer it was an even track and it was full up and it was a true test of riding the lines.”
“The winner was certainly a good winner and she was considerably faster as she took a risk into one of the fences and the others tried to look for points as well but ultimately I was impressed by the style of jumping on show.”
The next qualifier takes place on Friday 4 November at Addington Manor Equestrian Centre, Buckinghamshire.
