The weather held up
throughout the day, allowing
for superb competition from
the start. Competitors were
tested over a challenging
course, built by Nigel Jess and
the prize fund for each class
attracted a fantastic turnout
for all classes. The Grand
Prix class had spectators
on the edge of their seats,
with Olivia A Roulston,
Natasha Carolan and John
McLaughlin all qualifying for
the jump-off. However, it was
John McLaughlin who came
out on top, with a superb
clear round, in a time of 41.02,

horse, ‘Lincourt Luidam’.
