Mentoring for Rising Stars Entrants
Calling all budding showjumpers – the Takapoto Estate Show Jumping Rising Stars class beckons. Competitors in this 80cm class for pony riders under 17 do not need to be ESNZ registered and are guaranteed a great time. Last year Olympian Katie Laurie mentored a star-stacked field and this year, there will be more of the same from yet-to-be announced top riders.
Show director Jaime Tiller said the class was a huge success in 2019 with barely a seat to be found around the arena such was the interest from spectators and supporters. She’s expecting the same in 2020.
With a gorgeous Takapoto cover on offer for the winner and ribbons to sixth, it will surely be a hotly-contested class. Already on the card are brothers James and Oliver Steiner and Jaime is expecting plenty more entries from youngsters who will surely become the stars of tomorrow.
Rising Stars runs between 2pm and 4pm on Saturday (February 29) in the Takapoto Sand Arena 2.
