THE recent Southern Highlands Showjumping Championship received strong support from major local breeders.

Think Big Stud of Burradoo was a major sponsor for the featured puissance event.

Briddon Park Thoroughbreds and Carrington Park Stud also sponsored classes, along with industry professionals Nick Hill from Global Sport Horses and Anthony Warren.

The “Think Big how high can you go” puissance was a crowd pleaser, attracting the some of Australia’s top showjumpers.

Four world cup competitors made the trip to Robertson for the event.

Two riders, Moss Vale’s James Arkins and Clint Beresford of Canberra, successfully cleared 1.75m and attempted 1.85m in damp, foggy conditions.

The puissance event had not been held in NSW in close to a decade.

The inaugural Highlands showjumping championships were held in support of Life After Racing.

The organisation aims to increase the popularity of the thoroughbred breed after retiring from horse racing.

Life After Racing has plans to take the event mobile on a grand scale.

Life After Racing prize money is being rolled out across the state.

This gives riders an extra incentive to purchase, train and compete the thoroughbred horse.

As a result of the competition at Robertson, plans are in place to hold competitions in both Queensland and the ACT.

Life After Racing thanks the many event sponsors, along with event manager Casey Noble and the numerous volunteers who all made it happen.
