The 2015 New Stride Thoroughbred Adoption Society Jumper Challenge Series debuted this past Saturday at Thunderbird Show Park.
Fifteen competitors vied for $1,500 in prize money graciously sponsored by Hastings Racecourse. Katz Piller took home first place with her horse Benjamin Button. Emma Darvill rounded out second and third place with her mounts, Uschi & Tuffy.
New Stride is proud to recognize, promote, and reward Thoroughbred owners and riders with our third annual Thoroughbred Competition Series. The first two years were run in a Hunter Classic format and this year we’ve opted to run it as a Jumper Challenge to further showcase the versatility of Thoroughbreds. We aim to show the public the best side of the Thoroughbred horse and the industry built around it. Our unique series will raise the profile of Thoroughbreds in sport and will ultimately help find more homes for these magnificent animals.
