Goodwin hails Jericho’s bravery at jumps

DAVID Goodwin has finished eighth in the richest showjumping event in Australia at Richmond in New South Wales.

The Warwick rider was one of only two to go clear in the speed class on Warrego Jericho, but time penalties relegated him to sixth. One second quicker and he would have finished second.

Goodwin and Jericho qualified seventh for the second round at Richmond and finished eighth overall after knocking three rails in the second round.

He was impressed with how Jericho handled the 1.6m rails, the maximum height for the Olympics, at a show where there was $170,000 prizemoney.

"He has showed in the past couple of weeks he has the scope, power and braveness to handle the high fences," Goodwin said.

"I was happy with our performance; we were by far the least experienced combination and up against many planning to head to Europe."

He also enjoyed success at the Sydney Royal Easter Show with second, third and fourth placings.

Goodwin has seen enough from Jericho in New South Wales to further his plans to travel to Europe with the horse at the end of the year.

This month, he is based on the Central Coast where he is receiving some instruction from Olympic coach Rod Brown.
