Victory for the Australian Team in the 2017 Trans Tasman Young Rider Test at the Larsen Sawmilling Showjumping Championships in Gisborne, New Zealand.
On the final day, Jasmine Dennison aboard Cadbury (owned by Rick Shanks) and Madeline Sinderberry aboard Mosaic II (owned by Vicky Ridley) finished with clear slates, with Mitchell Peulic and Delta Fasteuex (owned by Oliver Croucher) adding eight faults and Stephanie MacKillop on Ake Ake (owned by Amy Gravatt) picked up eight and four over the two rounds.
With just the best three rounds to count, it left the Aussies with four faults from the two rounds and the Kiwis all clear. The run of clears also mean two bonus points for the hosts, while the visitors picked up one for their efforts in the opening round today. But in the end, the Australians won the test 10 points to six.
"This has been a fantastic trip," said Chef d'Equipe Becky Jenkins, "I am very proud of my team, who shows good sportsmanship and rode very well."
