Third time lucky for Manson

Twenty-two-year-old Jessica Manson withstood the pressure applied by Olympian and former Adelaide champion Megan Jones, posting a super clear round aboard her 13-year-old Australian Stock Horse, Legal Star, to win the second leg of the FEI Classics™ at the Australian International 3 Day Event. Manson set up her victory yesterday by producing the best cross country run, adding just 2.8 time penalties. That, coupled with a seemingly easily executed clear today, clinched the victory with just over six penalties ahead of Jones. It is not just a matter of putting your best foot forward, but putting all your feet forward the best, and the sure footed grey, which stands at 15.3 hands high, demonstrated no ill effects from his near mishap departing from the second water on course yesterday. “I was a bit shocked really,” declared a delighted Manson, “I had three down last year and that was on my mind when I walked the course, but when I rode in I just focused on the job I had to do”.

Jones early leader in FEI Classics Australian International CCI4*

Large crowds and cooler conditions were both welcomed to Victoria Park on Friday at the Australian International Three Day Event which marked the beginning of the Adelaide CCI4* which is the second leg of the 2014/15 FEI Classics series. Olympic silver medallist and South Australian Megan Jones and her horse Kirby Park Allofasudden are the early leaders, the pair proving their class in front of a packed Adelaide City Council Heritage Grandstand. Allofasudden is the horse which travelled with Jones to London for the 2012 Olympic Games, but was withdrawn from the Australian team due to a minor foot injury. The duo’s impressive comeback to major competition scored 51.50 which gives them a 5.3 penalty advantage leading into Qantas cross country day. “(This time) last year his foot still wasn’t quite right. We have had a long slow preparation and it’s helped so much on the flat. It’s really taken a long time and lots of schooling,” said an elated Jones. The atmosphere surrounding the dressage arena unsettled a few combinations and second placed combination and CCI4* debutant Belinda Isbister said, “it’s hard to prepare for an atmosphere like this, I know after today a lot of West Australians will be looking for a rent-a-crowd to practise with.” Isbister is having a fairy-tale run as she is currently holding second place on 56.80 penalties. Isbister also has a vocal and strong contingent of supporters. “They are pretty amazing, one of my friends has even made cheer squad shirts. Everybody from WA gets behind Adelaide. We love it.” Rounding out the top three in the CCI4* on a score of...
