EFA Grand Slam 2008

20 January 2008

Metro Showjumping Grounds


Sunday finally saw the return to equestrian competition with the EFA Show where the transferred Grand Slam events were decided after having originally been programmed for the abandoned horse schedule for the 2007 Adelaide Royal Show (due to EI).  A second hack ring was run throughout the day.  It was great to be back action after 5 months of cancellations due to the EI outbreak and organisers did a fantastic job for the first full day show back.

The hack ring had over 40 events decided for Galloways, Hack and Ponies under the eye of judge Sue Olson while the Be Active Grand Slam events were judged by Elizabeth Hunt and Elizabeth Chibnall.  The Rider under 10 years, Rider 10-12 years and Rider 12-14 years was awarded to Shauna Chaplin, Brianna Duncan-Coward and Jamie Stichel respectively.  The Be Active EFA Regional Grand Slam Pony ne 14hh class went to Dunelm Sequin ridden by Dani Jolly-Blacket with Wingana Perfection and Shauna Chaplin taking out the Reserve award.  The Be Active EFA Regional Grand Slam Galloway over 14hh ne 15hh was taken out by A Dunn's Cheraton Chardonnay with L Donoghue's Share the Moment the Reserve Champion.  The First Season Pony ne 14hh was decided next with victory going to Margot Haynes & Holly's Spring from S Faehrmann's Kolbeach Peter Pan.  I Barker's grey Ridgewood Park C'est La Vie was successful in the First Season Galloway 14hh - 15hh.  T Bussell's Exchequer took out the award for First Season Hack over 15hh.

The Rider 14-16 years went to F Barker from N Karutz while the Rider 18-21 class was taken out by M Karutz.  Rider over 21 years was awarded to Rachel Lawrie with Melissa Karutz named Champion Senior Rider.  The final Be Active EFA Regional Grand Slam class was the Hack over 15hh which went to Leanne Donoghue's Dance For Me with C Graham's Helden Park Millionaire awarded the Reserve Champion.
