TEENAGER Amy Newcombe and her pony Condor Goariva won their section of the first ever BE105 class at newly affiliated Offchurch Bury last weekend.

They achieved a dressage score of 33.5 and a double clear with just 8.4 time faults on a day which saw just seven double clears in the section and only one combination in all three 105 sections coming home inside the time.

Set in the beautiful grounds of Harry Johnson’s Offchurch Bury, this up to height, technical and beautifully built track maximised the contours of the old parkland tested competitors making the first step up from BE100.

“It rode beautifully. Mallow(stable name) loves her cross country,” said 15-year-old Newcombe.

“Despite being small she makes up the time by keeping a lovely rhythm and if I ride my lines well we can keep up with the bigger horses. I loved it!”

Newcombe is a keen member of the Warwickshire Hunt Pony Club and she is a pupil at Kingsley School in Leamingotn Spa where she has just finished her GCSEs.

She is looking forward to the summer working on a local eventing yard, competing Mallow and bringing on her new four year old horse.
