05 Apr Win for John Floody on Mise Le Meas at Barnadown last Sunday
Three in a row for John Floody last Sunday when he won the 1.20cm, 1.30cm & Connolly’s RED MILLS Spring Tour(1.35) at Barnadown.
This competition was sponsored by Felicity & Maurice Cousins & supported by the Showjumper’s Club.
16 combinations went to the jump off with Young Rider, Mikey Pender putting it up to the big lads with a fantastic time on Marian Hugh’s Shake It. One after another, the combinations took chances to try and beat Mikey’s time with a zero score but failed until the last combination arrived. You could feel the tension in the crowd, while John whished around the course to beat the Junior rider by a comfortable 2 seconds. Well done to John for a fantastic round on “Mise le Meas” and to Mikey Pender on “Shake It” who only sat up on his mount that morning for the first time.
