Vanessa Jobson-Scott qualifies for the WOW Saddles Star Championship

As we track the progress of the lucky riders who have qualified for the WOW Saddles Star Championships we hear from Vanessa Jobson-Scott who qualified Arthur van de Helle at Colraine…

“I have two horses, my mare Boheme Van De Ganzenakker (Bo) and Arthur Van De Helle (Arthur). We have had Bo about 4 months and Arthur about a month and we already have had a write up in Horse 7 Hound as Bo and I won 14 classes in 14 weeks! I qualified them both for the WOW Saddles Star Championships at Colraine, winning with Arthur and coming 3rd with Bo! I have also qualified for another class at the Blue Chip Winter Show Jumping Championships as well!”

“We are looking forward to Championships and also the Amateur finals as I’ve qualified for a few classes there too! Hopefully we want to compete at Hickstead this year and give the Derby a bash – the smaller version of course! But other than that just want to have fun and keep up the winning hopefully and start jumping the bigger tracks!”

“Mum is my trainer, Sally Jobson-Scott, and she is a very good one as I’ve only recently got back into my showjumping. Until 4 months ago I hadn’t competed since my junior days… I’m now 23 so that’s a 7 year gap!”

Anna Peruzzi-Smith is on her way to the Championships

We are thoroughly enjoying chatting to some of the riders who have qualified for the WOW Saddles Star Championship series! Here Anna Peruzzi-Smith introduces herself…

“I was thrilled to win the qualifier at Easton College,” says Anna. “My horse, Hello Vegas, (William) is a 13 year old British Bred Chestnut Gelding by Hello Oscar and out of Clare Clover by Clover Hill. He is owned by myself and my father Peter Peruzzi and we purchased him at 18 months old. Our biggest win to date was winning a British Open Amateur Qualifier back in 2010 and we were 5th in the final. That was a fantastic experience!”

We wish Anna the best of luck in the run up to the Blue Chip Winter Show Jumping Championships at Hartpury in April.
