Kiwis Win Trans Tasman Shield

Kiwis Win Trans Tasman Shield

New Zealand has white-washed Queensland in the Trans Tasman Young Rider Shield, which finished today (Sunday) at the National Young Horse Jumping Championships in Dannevirke.

The four strong teams – all aboard borrowed horses – completed two rounds a day over the three days of the show, with the Kiwis getting progressively stronger, and finishing the final day with a clean slate.

The four – captain Luke Dee (Ocean Beach), Jake Lambert (Cambridge), Logan Massie (Dannevirke) and Rosie Commons (Auckland) – jumped two clear rounds today, a feat almost unheard of.

Unfortunately for the Australian visitors – captain Gemma Crighton, Hugh Buchanan, Jessie Carnes and Toby McIntosh – things didn’t go so well.

Day one belonged to New Zealand, and brought a bonus point thanks to three clear rounds. Day two saw another victory for New Zealand, bringing the points to 5-2. Day three, New Zealand picked up another four points – two for the win plus two bonus points – and Queensland another single point, with the competition finishing 9-3 in favour of the hosts.

Trainer, Olympian Samantha McIntosh (Cambridge) and chef d’equipe Kaye Williams (Gisborne) were ecstatic with their young charges – especially as it is two seasons since New Zealand won the shield. The next stouch will be in Australia, mid-year.

The victory topped off three excellent days of jumping at the National Young Horse Championships. Katie McVean (Mystery Creek) has had a brilliant run, winning two of the three style prizes, as well as the four and seven year old titles, and picking up several other places.

The inform Luke Dee – who captained the New Zealand young rider team to victory today – won the five-year-old crown aboard Urban Blue NZPH and won the style prize in the same class on Uno Me NZPH, with Jesse Linton (Napier) and AP Ninja winning the six-year-old title.

Combinations had to jump a round a day over the three days, with faults accumulating.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
