The second week started with an explosion of clear rounds in the young horse classes. In the 5-year-olds class 92 horses entered and 71 of these jumped a clear round. The 6-year-old class was a well attended class with a total of 168 horses jumping and 121 of those went clear. The Milton arena at the Sunshine Tour, whe these classes are held, is ideal for young horse classes, as it is wide and open, measuring up at 105 x 75m.
The 7-year-old two phase class was divided in to two sections. Section A was won by German David Will riding Junior Kannan. In second place was a British rider Tamarin Christie and her horse Janita. Third was the Swedish rider, Linda Heed with Calvin FPZ. Section B was won by Kim Emmen from the Netherlands riding Astrid’s Lad, second place was for the German rider Jens Baackmann with Dark Grey. The winner of last Sunday’s Horseware Grand Prix, Jérôme Guery was third with the up and coming Tender Dream Hero Z.
