BROADWINSOR showjumper Luli Loveridge jumped to a fantastic second-placed finish at Horse of The Year Show last weekend on her 13.2 dun pony Arrow Head Quiver.

They were in the 13.2 class called the 138 final with 23 others and she was less than one second behind first.

Loveridge said: “It was really exciting, because it was a really technical and big full-up course.

“The jumps were coming up really quickly and I just had to take deep breaths and take everything in, but it was so exciting.”

Loveridge, 14, jumped two accurate and fast clear rounds to take second place on her 22-year-old pony Quiver.

This qualifies them for the Liverpool International on December 31, which will be their last outing.

Loveridge admitted she was just hoping to go clear in the first round and had not been thinking of getting a result that would see them qualify for Liverpool.

Loveridge said: “When we were walking around the shopping village I just suddenly looked at mummy and I said ‘oh my gosh I’ve qualified for Liverpool!’ because we had completely forgotten that the top four (finish, at HOYS) qualify for Liverpool.”

Loveridge is out of riding 13.2s on this day so Quiver will be handed down to Loveridge’s little sister, Anouska, who has already got her first double clear in a Winter First Round at 1.10m.

Two double clear scores secure Anouska’s qualification in the second rounds for the Royal International at Hickstead.
