The very first show conducted by the newly formed Adelaide Hills Show Jumping Club was held last weekend at the beautiful Wirrina Cove. The action took place over two rings on both Saturday and Sunday under perfect sunny skies. By all accounts, their Showjumping Spectacular was a resounding success in every way.
The feature event of the weekend was the Hann’s Horse Transport Gold Cup over 1.40m. Susie Verco and Captivate took out the victory over the experienced Anthony Thomas and SL Donato, a gelding formerly ridden by Clint Beresford at World Cup Qualifier Level.
Sunday’s action also saw the Thompson and Redwood Silver Cup decided. Equestrian SA Life member and 1996 Atlanta team eventing Gold Medalist Wendy Schaeffer lead the way on her 9-year-old mare Gitta Bella. Ashleigh Westcott and Land Of The Free came in second while Kurt Siviour and Gringo rounded out the podium.
