Madison Jamison lands the 148cm grand prix at South View

Madison Jamison and the scopey Bodyssee des Avelines claimed victory in the 148cm grand prix at South View’s winter pony championships.

This Belgian-bred 10-year-old mare came as a Christmas present, and proved a winner almost immediately. The new partnership qualified for the Charles Britton winter JA classic at South View’s British Master later this year won at Arena UK’s premier to underscore talent.

And the pair showed their rivals a clean pair of heels to take the £250 to the winner.“She gives me confidence, I can trust her to any fence,” said Madison.

Harry Wood guided Patchwork Poncho into second with Sandy McLean’s Tobar King in third. Ffion Roberts claimed fourth and sixth with Kantjes Bozzy and Rich Faith, and Sophie Bowen Howard sandwiched Quincy V into fifth.

Red Morgan jumped to the top in the 138cm grand prix with Quest du Buhot. The French-bred 13-year-old joined Red 12 months ago and their established partnership showed here as they outpaced all to take the title. Iwan Carpenter and the eight-year-old Fancy a Baileys rode into second spot with Claudia Harding on Cheeky Chap in third. Elica Banks popped Ferrybank Roy into fourth with Madison Heath picking up fifth and sixth on The Jacaloupe and Sonas Barney.

Annabell Sanderson scooped her biggest win with victory in the 128cm grand prix on the French-bred coloured 14-year-old Elith. Charlie Atkinson, who enjoyed a bumper 2016 winning at the Scope Festival and the Liverpool New Year show, had to settle for second on this occasion with Bunbury Conquest. Izabella Rogers rode Whinney Lass into third and Essenar Jinja Ninja into sixth with Tabitha Kyle fourth on Borderhill William and Oliver Fry took fifth aboard Colliyers Pal Joey.

A delighted Regan Weston triumphed in the British Showjmuping 128/138cm handicap special final. She guided the 17-year-old 138cm Mr Richie, an Irish pony competed since October, into an unbeatable lead to take the title.

Charlotte Bevan jumped into second on the Irish 18-year-old Cappuccino IV with Red Morgan in third on Ballyhannon Celtic Grey. Noora van Bulow took fourth and fifth on Peppino Il Grande and Bellfield Benjamin, and Tabitha Kyle rode into sixth on Coreys Princess.

Tilly Shaw landed the 11-year-old and under championship with Darosa D Amour, a 13-year-old she has only jumped for six weeks. Naomi Howard-Batts eased Quarry into second with Grace Shuddall Hughes in third on Solcum Donatella and Noora on Peppino Il Grande fourth. Tabitha Kyle guided Strawberry Time into fifth and Connie Mensley took sixth on Gemstone Sienna.

Jake Gibson netted the top spot in the 1m open on the 13-year-old gelding Llettycrudd Cardi Bach, pushing Paige Newton into second and third on two 14-year-olds, Lizs Pride and Conans Delight. Izabella Rogers claimed fourth on Essenar Jinja Ninja and Thomas Pritchard rode into fifth with Alpachineo.

Elsi Jaques doubled up with two wins. She headed the Direct Insurance Group Bright Star qualifier on the seven-year-old dun mare Westward Sunshine and also claimed third aboard the 10-year-old stallion Trevoulter Ladies Man. Jai Snelling and Mullate Duchess were sandwiched into second.

And Elsi also topped the pony newcomers with the 15-year-old Irish gelding Strawberry Box, relegating Darcy Gabriel into second on Priestown Tomboy.

George Cowley outpaced all to head the Foxhunter/1.10m open on the 10-year-old mare Charity IV. Ella Quigley rode into second spot on the 10-year-old Clemens 43 with Harriet Williams in third on Caherlistrane Glass.
