Tomorrow is an important day with the Finals for the Young Horses taking place here at the Andalucía Sunshine Tour 2022.  This is our second Young Horse Finals of the Tour and there are many new names topping the podium that are hot favourites to win their sections.  Over the three age groups, 5, 6 and 7YOs, there will be 215 youngsters competing with the jumping starting up at 09:00. Qualification for the Finals means that each horse must have jumped at least four clear rounds over these last three weeks of classes here at the Tour.  The 7YO class will be held at 09:00 in arena 5 Milton, and there are 57 finalists.  From 15:30 this arena will also host the 5YO Finals where there are 60 competitors.  In arena 8, Baloubet de Rouet, the 6YO Final will be held, the class will start at 11:30 and has the largest number of qualified horses with 98 in all taking to the ring.  Today was the last day that these horses could add a clear round score to their qualifier sum and many horses did exactly that.
