Jaye Hall is off to a great start to the season with 372.49 points, leaving her comfortably in third place. Will 2017 be the first year that we see a lady rider take out the Champion Title?

The horses of Ben and Jaye Hall dominate the top three places of the Riverina Champion Open Horse Title. Jackson, Eltorrio and Foot Acre are the horses to watch with 171, 161.20 and 145 points respectively.
