TO HAVE perfection in showjumping a rider must be in sync with their horse as they negotiate jumps around a course.
Clem Smith had a perfect day out on his horses competing yesterday in the Queensland Country Showjumping championships at the Bundaberg Show.
Participating in the 1.15m and 1.25m class, and the Grand Prix, the Gatton rider cleared every jump as he dominated the course.
Wins in the 1.15m class and the Grand Prix on Guru were backed up with a second in the 1.25m class and third with Delilah in the Grand Prix, almost clean sweeping the podium.
Talking after the wins Smith said everything worked well on the course.
"John Vallance created a great flowing course at the show," he said.
"I was just good on the day and I was very happy with my performance."
The win also gave Smith back-to-back championships after taking out the state titles a few weeks ago.
"It's quite hard to get it - I'm very pleased" he said.
"There are plenty of good competitors who are tough to beat on their day."
Smith said the Bundaberg Show had organised an excellent meet.
"The show society ran a great show for us," he said.
"The facilities were great and we were looked after well."
Smith will now compete in Emerald before taking a break to rest his horses from competition.
In other results Chloe Hughes took out the 1.25m class with Karlee Mackay and Becky Jenkins finishing second in the 1.15m class and Grand Prix respectively.
The competition concluded today with the juniors and young riders competing for their state titles.
