JAS Novice 2018 19 Feb 18

Jam packed Baileys Jumping & Style Championships 2018!

The BE Winter Championships, sponsored by Baileys, got underway this weekend with the finals of the Jumping & Style (JAS) series taking place on the 17th February at Hartpury College in Gloucestershire.

The popular Baileys JAS series sees combinations starting over a course of show jumps followed by a timed course of cross country style fences inside an arena, any jumping or time penalties are then added to the judge’s style mark. The style mark is based on criteria such as a rider’s position, arena craft and horse’s paces and technique; the Champion is the combination on the lowest final score.

It was a winning weekend for JAS Championship regular Southerly Roberts who secured a one-two in the JAS Novice and win in the JAS Open Novice Championship classes. A highly competitive field saw Southerly taking the win in the Open Novice section on her 13 year old mare Tinx with a final score of just 11 after adding no jumping or time penalties to her style score. Florence Finzi picked up a style mark of just nine but with four time penalties from the cross country section she finished with a score of 13 to sit in second place just ahead of Claire Dueten and Valerie Scott’s Ustinov van Elsenham on 15, made up of 14 for style and one cross country time penalty.

Southerly also enjoyed success on her own 12 year old mare Fizz IV winning the Novice class on a final score of 18 ahead of herself on LVS Jackpot with a score of 21 after adding ten cross country time penalties to their style score of 11. Kylie Roddy and her own and Shearwater Insurance’s Shearwater Bonaparte completed the top three on a score of 24.

Georgina Wood and Symmetry picked up the win in the BE100Open class with a style score of 11 with no jumping penalties, keeping them three points ahead of second placed Daisy Bathe and her 18 year old gelding Alfie XI. Storma Finston’s Lookout Lollypop, ridden by Emily Finston, also finished on a score of 14 but stopping the clock further from the optimum time than Daisy and Alfie XI left them in third place.

A packed BE100 section saw a win for Laura Watson and her own seven year old Gotcha PSS with just one time penalty to add to their style score of 11 for a 12 point total over Holly Cartwright and Niarca II on 13. Georgina Wood was in the prizes again in third place on a score of 14 this time on her seven year old War Horse II.

Italy’s Vittoria Panizzon had a successful day on Mr and Mrs Peter and Jan Price’s young horse Secret Legacy with a win in the BE90 Open class. The five year old mare added no jumping or time penalties to their style score of 11 to take the win ahead of Abigail Boulton and Katy Prince’s Carnsdale Quick Decision on a score of 13 with another third placing for Kylie Roddy who finished on her style score of 14 with Madelaine Woodford’s Reddington Squirrel.

In the opening class of the day Freya Kendrew and her nine year old Easter VII claimed the win in the BE90 with a style score of just 10 to sit two points ahead of second placed Lucy Baguley and Nicola Baguley’s Charlie Go Go. Also on a final score of 12 but further from the optimum time it was another placing for Holly Cartwright and Niarca II as they took third place in the hotly contested class.
