Two New Zealand riders have secured top-10 finishes at the Houghton Hall International three-day equestrian event in England, a leg of the Nations Cup series.

London Olympic reserve Lucy Jackson was fourth on Willy Do while Jesse Campbell, making his senior New Zealand debut on Kaapachino, was ninth as the young Kiwi team finished fourth in the team standings.

Jackson added 5.2 time faults in the cross-country to her dressage score of 45.6 to finish on 50.8, nine points behind German Ingrid Klimke on Tabasco TSF who led the field home after adding just a single showjumping rail to her dressage score.

Campbell and Kaapachino had two rather expensive showjumping rails and 1.6 time faults in the cross-country but still finished a credible ninth in his senior New Zealand team start, while Tim Rusbridge on

The fourth member of the team, Clarke Johnstone, retired Regal Romar in the cross-country after two stops at fence No 4.

Britain (150.6 points) won the British stop in the Nations Cup, with Germany (164.7) second and Australia (166.6) edging the Kiwis (168.2) for the final podium position.

New Zealand sent a development-type team to the event, providing the second-tier riders with an opportunity to experience what it's like to compete for New Zealand in a team environment.
