First timer completions 2024

Seven first timers made it through to the final showjumping phase today.

Best of the class of 2024, Lucy Latta (IRL, pictured) moved up one place from her cross-country finish to the runner-up spot despite RCA Patron Saint having a couple of rails down. Lucy climbed from 46th after dressage, also winning the William Miflin Memorial Trophy, awarded to the rider of the horse with no cross-country jumping penalties and closest to the optimum time.

Grace Taylor (USA) also leapt up the leaderboard, from 31st after dressage to eventual 18th on Game Changer with two rails down.

Will Rawlin limited Ballycoog Breaker Boy’s penalties to 12. With a final score of 70.2 he completed in 24th place.

Jessica Phoenix (CAN) finished in 30th on Wabbit, up from 62nd after dressage despite a very expensive showjumping round, while one place behind was Cosby Green (USA) on Copper Beech who also sent some poles flying.

Helen Bates riding Carpe Diem added 16 penalties to their two-phase score to complete on 144.1 in 37th place. Max Warbuton and Monbeg Exclusive experienced a similar fate, posting a final score of 139.1 for 36th.
