Chris Chugg - National Champion Again

National Champion again

Sydney’s Chris Chugg, 48 (pictured right) has won the Australian Jumping Championship for the second consecutive year riding the 11-year-old Vivant.

The Championships were held 09-12 October at Exhibition Park, Canberra.  270 riders on 600 horses culminated in a total of 2,840 entries for the four-day show.

The win was the ultimate homecoming for Vivant, who was released from quarantine the Tuesday prior to the Championships.  Vivant had returned from 4 months in Europe where he and Chugg had vied for Olympic selection and were named as the Jumping Team Reserve.

“He really matured from his time in Europe,” said Chugg “He went away a young Grand Prix horse and has come back a real Grand Prix horse.  After the exposure to the big shows and the international arenas I feel I could front up to any class in the world on him now.”

More frequent flyer points are on the horizon for the well travelled stallion. Chris plans to compete him on the American circuit next year in preparation for the 2010 World Championships in Kentucky.

“This horse will continue to mature and improve for the next 15 months and with some 4 and 5 star shows under his belt he could be very competitive at the World Games and also at London in 2012,” said Chugg

21-year-old Jamie Winning of Ebenezer NSW was runner-up to Chugg in the Senior Championship riding her imported gelding Yandoo Vangelo.

 “It is an exciting time for Australian Jumping,” commented Chugg “we have some seriously talented young riders that will be a force on the world stage in the future.”  

The Young Rider Championship was won by Emily Blinkworth also from Sydney riding CP Romantic Dream and the Junior Championship was secured by Tom McDermott of Wagga Wagga aboard Merriwa.
