CCC equestrians in the spotlight

Members of the national equestrian team garnered utmost attention at the Cambodian Country Club showjumping championship sponsored by Ezecom on Saturday with Sim Narith stealing a march over his team-mates as the only rider to clear all the hurdles without a hitch on way to the top spot.

Narith’s win at the CCC Horse Park came in the 1m class where Lon Sopheaktra finished second ahead of Phat Makara. All three of them represented Cambodia at the June SEA Games in Singapore.

As many as 40 riders from the CCC, Liberty Ranch and Vannarins KEC took part in the one-day event.

Alicia Khiem, one of the Kingdom’s most talented female riders, showed her mettle in the 70cm class. Riding Pixoo, the teenager made neat breaks to win ahead of Fiona on Juanca and Tamsin on Pixoo.

In the 50cm event, Sarah raced to victory astrider Uva Negra after a tough jump off. Inge riding Zoff was runner-up and Sophia on Chouchou got into third position.

In the opener, the cross poles, Bora was the winner on Malis, closely followed by Reti and Sophia, both of whom rode Chouchou.
