Riviera Rider Round Up - November 2020


Sara Malpass.

 

Sara was the first rider to join the Riviera Riders roster and has made the most of getting out and about during 2020 - it certainly hasn't been an easy year for any of us to compete!

 

On her horse Pingo (pictured) Sara managed to secure qualification for the British Dressage Winter Regionals at Advanced Medium and the Advanced Medium Music with scores up to 71%.

 

They have also qualified for the PSG Petplan Championships with two scores of 66% and 65% - fantastic for only their second attempt at this level!

 

 On her other horse Zeus, Sara completed her winter regional qualification at Medium and Medium Freestyle, again with scores of up to 71%.

 

They also competed at the rescheduled British Dressage Winter Championships at Hartpury in August where they finished a brilliant 8th in the Elementary Silver.

 

Lockdown has seen Sara strengthen up Zeus whilst Pingo has had a tooth removed, the aim being to take Zeus out at Advanced Medium perhaps before the end of the year and target Pingo at Inter 1 next year.

 

Sara is now supported by the incredibly talented Saraste-Photography and also eGlove through working with Riviera PR.


Jayne Turney

 

Jayne has had a busy few months since competitions recommenced earlier this year.

 

The British Dressage Winter Championships were a huge highlight where Jayne and Tom Cruz III were crowned PSG Gold Champions - the first ever pony to do so. They also went on to finish 5th in the Inter I Gold in a strong line up.

 

Jayne has also been busy producing and competing the Young Horses too - for the first time ever the Nexgen Young Horse Championships ran; Bermuda WD (pictured) owned by Lindsay Roberts of Windmill Stud won his qualifier and finished 4th at the finals.

 

Friendship, owned by Malcolm and Judy Harvey qualified for the Shearwater Young Horse Finals too, and although unplaced at the final he went on to show his incredible work ethic.

 

Jayne is now supported by eGlove and also Equine Products UK through working with Riviera PR.


Jodie Seddon

 

Jodie and her horses have made the most of the competitions that have run throughout 2020 with success in both show jumping and eventing.
