CATEGORY A MEMBER WINS FIRST NH BUMPER OPEN TO CAT AS!
Congratulations to Richard Tierney who won the first NH bumper of the season which allows Cat A riders to compete against Cat Bs and Conditionals.
This was especially good news for Richard as he has only recently returned to the saddle after breaking his leg which kept him out of action for 6 months.
Only 17, Richard won the Racing Post Weekender Novice Rider’s Award 2005 with 3 wins from 6 rides point-to-pointing. Richard is delighted at this bumper win as it should help him towards gaining his Cat B licence later in the year and is of course his first win under Rules.
Many thanks to everyone at the BHB for programming these new bumpers to give our Category A members many more opportunities to race ride and therefore help them to gain their Cat B licences. There are 36 more bumpers left this season which will have similar conditions.
