On Friday night Christchurch's Hagley Park hosted showjumping classes in support of breast cancer. Organiser of the event Lisa Tenekoon had the idea that Hagley Park would be the ideal venue for showcasing showjumping in Christchurch.
Within walking distance of the city centre, the horses competed in a 1.25m speed class, followed by the ponies over a 1.15 class. Roger Laplanche built the course, and although it wasn’t huge in show jumping, it set up a great competition and the crowd loved it.
Harry Feast won the horse competition to claim the $1000 prize on Double J Bouncer. With Jaimee Bird on Wenrose Vertigo taking out 2nd place.
