Hav. Kuldeep Singh of host ASC Centre & College won the National equestrian championship that concluded here on Sunday.
Trailing Ris. Rajpal Singh in the Three Day Event standings after the dressage and cross country competitions,
Hav. Kuldeep inched ahead with his superior performance in the show-jumping – the final part of the triathlon – to claim the individual title. LD Govind Ram finished in third place.
RVC Centre & College ‘B', comprising Ris. Rajpal, Swr. Rajender Singh, Nb. Ris. Narender Singh, and LD Hari Om, bagged the team title.
The tenth competitor to take his turn in the 10-jump arena, Hav. Kuldeep looked assured astride Trishul, faltering only at three obstacles to incur a total of 12 faults.
While the first six jumps were flawless, Trishul foundered on the seventh, knocking over the rails on the 1.15m fence – the highest on the 370m course.
The following two jumps – a vertical and the Liverpool – were cleared with ease but the horse struggled on the final one, dropping two of the three obstacles that made up the combination jump.
Ris. Rajpal may have been the favourite at that point, but the RVC Centre & College rider, astride Mustafa, knocked over six obstacles, incurring 24 faults, to hand his rival the title.
