Success in the wet
Hickstead All England Jumping Championships 2013 was a great success
Most notably Rumbolds Warrior’s Echo jumped double clear to come equal first in
both the qualifying class and in the Four year old championship. She looked very
much at home and jumped superbly in the International Arena.
Geronimo RG also owned by Rumbolds Stud jumped a fabulous round in very wet conditions
to qualify for the International ring in the 1.30m. He was clear in the first round
and in a tough jump off was unlucky to just miss out on a placing. A star to us none
Joanne Marlor who was training with us also jumped some excellent rounds on her horse
Blesse. We were so pleased with how well they coped with the tough conditions and
unique Hickstead atmosphere.
