IF there was any doubt about how highly regarded the Euroa Jumping Classic has become over the last four years one has only to look at the speed with which the competition classes sold out.
It took just 19 minutes for some of the classes to fill and only a bit more time before the whole competition was sold out.
Even local eventing champion Adrian Bright, who competes at the highest level of his sport, struggled to secure entry.
“Luckily I knew somebody who could pull a few strings,” Mr Bright said.
The Euroa Secondary School teacher will take two of his young horses to the Euroa Jumping Classic and compete in a series of classes.
“My horses are still young so this is about training. I’m less worried about winning than I am about getting a clear round and my horses being able to handle a competition situation,” he said.
