Kermond wins at Gatton

Jamie Kermond riding Colthaga secured victory in the Gatton World Cup CSI1*-W at the weekend just edging out fellow New South Wales rider and the reining Australian Show Jumping Champion Tom McDermott who placed second with SL Limerick.

Along with eventual third placed combination, New Zealand’s Samantha McIntosh and Estina, Kermond and McDermott were the only riders in the top ten to produce clear opening rounds.

A single time penalty in the second round was Kermond and Colthaga’s only fault of the day and they finished three penalties ahead of McDermott and SL Limerick who completed the course within the permitted time despite suffering an early rail down in the second.

Samantha McIntosh finished in third place after picking up five penalties in the second round.
