This weekend saw Cumbria play host to a successful Kent & Masters Arena Eventing Championship qualifier at the Blackdyke Farm Riding and Competition Centre (24th January 2016).
Kirsty Hogg from Dumfries in the Scottish Borders was on tremendous form clocking up two wins, taking first place in the BE90 on her own Bloomfield Flapjack along with both the win and runner up spot in the BE100 on her second ride Crispen.
Organiser Douglas Weymouth of Cumbria Horse Trials commented; “Kirsty managed to achieve just 0.03 seconds off the optimum time on Bloomfield Flapjack and 0.24 seconds off the pace with Crispen to take home a clutch of clothing prizes from generous local sponsor Maiden Marine of Windermere and now look well on their way to gaining points towards the Kent & Masters Arena Eventing Championship at Blair Castle in August.
“Kirsty is on such great form she will inspire many less experienced riders to develop their own skills at judging the pace for this relatively new competition format.”
Arena Eventing is a two phase competition, where competitors jump a course of show jumps immediately followed by cross country fences, run at BE90 and BE100 level where riders can win the opportunity to compete at one of the two Kent & Masters Arena Eventing Championships to be held at Blair Castle International 25th to 28th August 2016 and Blenheim Palace International 8th to 11th September 2016.
