Showjumping spectacular in Robertson

World cup rider Grant Hughes will compete at this weekend’s Southern Highlands Showjumping Championships. Photo suppliedROBERTSON will host a very special showjumping event tomorrow.

The first puissance event in NSW in close to a decade will be held at the Robertson Showground at 4pm.

Puissance is a high jump competition of showjumping.

The event will be held as part of the inaugural Southern Highlands Showjumping Championships, which will run tomorrow and Sunday.

The competition will cater to all showjump facets.

The championship has attracted 100 riders, including international riders James Arkins, Andrew Inglis and Grant Hughes.

The event is being held to support the Life After Racing organisation.

Life After Racing aims to increase the popularity of the thoroughbred breed after retiring from horse racing.

The organisation’s founder Wayne Slattery has helped to organise the Southern Highlands Showjumping Championships.

Slattery said he hoped the inaugural event would raise $20,000 for Life After Racing.

He said preparations were on track for this weekend’s competition.

“We have had a fair bit of rain, but the showground usually dries out pretty well,” Slattery said.

“We have 100 competitors and there will be close to 600 rounds across the two days.”

The action will begin at 8am on both days.

Slattery said the championship would cater for riders of all abilities.

“We will have elite riders through to grand prix, and there will be junior and senior classes,” he said.

“We have tried to develop a program to cater for everyone.”

Highlanders are also invited to attend a dinner at the Robertson Showground tomorrow night.

Cost is $15 per head.
