JumpCross Headquarters at Grange Farm, Wittering near Peterborough started off the season with the first competition and Young Rider Challenge qualifier of the year.

There was a huge turnout of competitors and spectators alike with more than 95 rounds jumped throughout the day.

The sections were highly competitive with each rider looking to score as many league points as possible.

The 2012 Young Rider Challenge, supported by Lincoln products has qualifying events at JumpCross sites all over the country leading up to a grand final with a £1,000 prize purse at the final on June 26.

Four riders made it through to the prestigious final which will take place on the same day as the Lincoln JumpCross Eventer’s Challenge.

Qualifying places went to Ross Hemmings, Rosie Bishop, Kloe Davis and Savarna Burrows who are now looking forward to the final.

Robin Dunlop’s well planned track featured water crossings, combinations and joker fences allowing riders to improve their score at the very end of the round.

With the recent weather the going was good and the weather stayed bright on the day for the riders to enjoy.

Said Robin: “JumpCross events are now well established in the calendar at Grange Farm. I’m delighted that we had some top class competition which was enjoyed by all who took part – it was a great way to start the JumpCross season.”
