An Important Week of Competition Ahead for Young Horses on the 2021 Sunshine Tour

In another week bursting with anticipation and competition for young horses and their riders at this year’s Sunshine Tour, theirs everything to play for! The pressure really is on as, in order to get into the finals, the pairings must accumulate 4 clear rounds.

At the start of the new week there were a large number of combinations jumping on what was a very lovely sunny day. Tuesday is the last opportunity for a few of the horses that still need one more clear round to qualify for the Final and also, any that want to jump a practice round ready for Wednesday.
