Cambridge rider Jake Lambert won his first grand prix event at the Taranaki Showjumping Group's two-star show in Hawera on Sunday.

Riding 9-year-old gelding Quality NZPH, Lambert was one of just three of the 11 starters to reach the jumpoff.

From there, the 19-year-old rookie led from the front.

Lambert flew home, clear in 39.16 seconds.

Dannevirke's Logan Massie, on Kiwi Ludo, came up tantalisingly short with a time of 39.28sec, while Catherine Cameron, of Cambridge, on Lights Out, took down a rail and finished third.

"I just wanted to have a solid round and be consistent," Lambert said.

In the young rider class, South Taranaki ruled. Waverley's Jamie Thurlow was first aboard Clifton Ali, with Hawera's Tim Myers second on Pick Me NZPH.

Myers won the class at the Egmont A & P Show last Friday.
