Helena Stewart Wins Greenfields of Avondale

HELENA Stewart and her highland pony Fergus ran out the winners of the Greenfields of Avondale JumpCross league for 2010.

The Strathaven-based JumpCross site has had a busy year with the league running over five months and attracting a lot of interest.

The league has been fiercely fought out with many competitors turning out each month to compete in a bid to win the league. Points are accrued down to tenth place and the final event saw a number of riders with the top spot within their grasp.

It came down to the very last event, the course was tough and testing with the new water complex included.

Winner Helena Stewart (20) and her pure bred highland pony, Fergus, put in an excellent round beating of the close competition.

Said Helena: “Fergus has been amazing, he was on box rest last year and has come back fighting fit. He is now 16-years-old so he’s no spring chicken either. He jumped extremely well throughout the season and we managed some good results to keep us well up in the league tables.

“I am very pleased with him and it is great that we have won. I have had Fergus five years now and we enjoy doing a bit of everything but we really love JumpCross.”

Helena is currently studying Environmental Chemistry at Glasgow University and enjoys taking time out to compete at local shows with her pony.
