Allan Showjumping Team picks up momentum again

On a day when team rider John Crippen won two classes at the Addington Manor Christmas Classic Show, LOUGHNATOUSA DIAMOND made the step up from Foxhunter to Grade C with a victory by a full three seconds in the jump-off.

Competing against good horses and the country’s top riders, the John Crippen / Diamond combination “went for it” especially at the last obstacle, clearing it like a Grand National fence at full gallop and somehow getting over the back rail.
