The Australian Jumping Championships opened today with classes held across two arenas. Despite strong winds not only delaying the start of action, but holding up proceedings throughout the day. The scheduled day of classes were completed and we look forward to classes proceeding for the rest of the show without delays due to the wind.
Arena 1 saw three classes scheduled for completion, all first rounds of championship series with the first class completed being round 1 of the Young Rider Championship. Leaving all the rails up and completing the course in just 71.32 seconds were the in-form Victorian combination of Hayden Parker and Tulara Spangenburg. Second place with a clear round of 75.80 seconds were William Wood and Celerity Park Veestar with Jack Barker and Tulara Colchic finishing third, in a time of 76.51 seconds.
