Sydney Showjumping Club 18th October 09
A beautiful day at Sydney Showjumping Club on Sunday 18t October produced some excellent showjumping.
Convener for the day, Colleen Brook said, "The grounds are in fabulous condition and the horses have jumped extremely well. We are extremely lucky in this Hawkesbury area to have one of the best jumping venues in the country!"
Bob Brooks and Paul Tridgell designed the courses and judges were organized by chief judge Joyce Brook. Judges included Juho Loouver, Sue Nault, and Bob Brooks. Anyone interested in doing their judge training should contact Joyce on 45763405

One of the highlights of the day was the impressive win by Liz Koob riding Caesars Palace in a tight jump off against the clock in the 1.20m class. Tom Smith's lovely big warmblood Casper looked good winning the D grade class and Alex Pope's new horse Celerity Park Skylark put up a good performance.
