PRESIDENT’S CUP 2014 By Yvonne Bolton / Photos by T&B Images
On-going sponsorship from Tack n Togs made the 13th annual President’s Cup once again a most successful and well supported Show with the main events taking place in the ever popular Martin Collins EcoTrack Wax Arena.
he mild weather also encouraged a large crowd to attend the final day’s jumping in support of all the competitors. This created a fantastic atmosphere with umbrellas, camp chairs and blankets all providing a colourful array to brighten up the immaculate arena. Tiger Brands had also kindly sponsored innumerable cases of their Game Isotonic drink. All the prize winners, irrespective of their placing, were delighted to receive 24 unit cases bestowed on them to carry off home for family and grooms.
Maple Ridge is well known for their generous prize money and this year was no exception with all the classes receiving magnanimous amounts for those fortunate to be in the placings. The major adult events once again produced some exceptional jumping and Callaho Warmblood Stud’s C Ultra was clear over all three classes that made up The President’s Cup. The only other rider to go clear throughout was Samantha McIntosh on Let’s Win, however, in the sixth and final jump off Govett managed to squeeze ahead by 0.2 of a second to secure top spot.
