The stadium will be filled in the evening with World Cup competitors. Photo: SUPPLIED. New Zealand s top showjumpers will compete in the Manawatu Stan- dard round of the Bomac World Showjumping at Feilding this week- end. To compete internationally World Cup riders must compete indoors, and the Manfeild stadium is the only place in New Zealand suitable for this. Until three years ago the riders had to take their horses overseas, at huge expense, to qualify. There are six rounds of the World Cup, cul- minating in the final at Tauranga in February. Horse and rider are required to complete a course comprising between 10 to 13 removable timber obstacles at a height of up to 1.5 metres. The aim is to jump the course in the designed sequence and with no mistakes. If any part of an obstacle is knocked down or if the horse refuses a jump, faults are accumulated. Depending on the type of the com- petition, the winner is the horse and rider combination which incurs the least number of penalties, completes the course in the fastest time or gains the highest number of points. The event has drawn 13 of the riders registered for the cup in New Zealand this year. Dannevirke s Maurice Beatson has two horses, My Gollywog and Schimmel Warrior. Beatson, on Gol- lywog, won the first round of the cup at Hawke s Bay. Lisa Coupe from Kumeu will bring My Ocean Wave and Bates Amaretto MVNZ. Coupe has had an outstanding season to date, with both horses taking out the quinella in the two-star Grand Prix at Woodhill Sands two weeks ago. The initial winner of the indoor round at Manfeild, Ohaupo s Katie McVean will ride Dunstan Daffodil. After winning in 2009 McVean went on to the World Cup in America with her great mare Delphi, and this year was sixth in the world at Leipzip. Delphi was sold to overseas competitors for an undisclosed sum. However, McVean will always have another top horse coming on and this season s is Daffodil. McVean won last year s series on Delphi. Christchurch competitor Carrisa McGregor is making the haul north with Chatterton. The pairing have not been seen in the North Island this season but past performance will put them in the running. Simon Wilson from Waipawa will ride Swinger. This pairing is experi- enced and will find the Leicester Jarden course a challenge. Bernard Denton with Suzuki (3rd= 2010/11 series) and Tessa Wil- liams Alltech Craighaven Nitro, both from Gisborne, have jumped in the stadium before with success. Husband and wife combination from Tauranga Philip (2nd 2010/11) and Sally Steiner will bring Annandale Online NZPH and Wickliffe Brannigan. This couple have represented New Zealand in the past and are capable of turning in huge rounds. The stadium holds no surprises for Opiki s Lucy Akers (3rd= 2010/11) series with her very good horse Cortaflex Tinapai. Auckland s Daniell Maurer rode the stadium in September on her very good horse Blue Rinse with success. The Manawatu Standard World Cup Round is the culmination of two full days horse events at Manfeild for the Feilding show. Huge entries have been received for the show, as the word has spread about the new all-weather sand arenas, which give all an equal chance right through the two days. The World Cup starts at 7pm on Saturday night. It will be preceded by top horses in the pony Grand Prix three star and the three-star young rider series which starts at 4.30pm. Entry to the stadium is $5.
