Wet weather, willing volunteers and wonderful entries made for an action-packed but highly successful showjumping weekend at Albury recently.
There were more than 800 rounds of showjumping for the Border Districts Showjumping Club’s grand prix event on August 18 and 19.
The rain was a welcome sight but meant a change of arenas for events scheduled on grass as well as a few bogged campsites, organiser Jess Bertram said.
However the jumping surfaces at the Albury Wodonga Equestrian Centre offered good footing for the conditions, she said.
Courses were designed by Brad Longhurst in Ring 1 and Jess Bertram in Ring 2 with judges Dallas Golby and Tracey Crawshaw overseeing those rings respectively.
“Our event is turning out to be a must on most Victorian showjumping enthusiasts’ calendars,” Ms Bertram said.
“Entries were pretty much full after 45 minutes of being open online to the public.”
