Which team will be victorious in the second leg of the AJTL?
The first leg of the Australian Jumping Teams League (AJTL) held at Willinga Park a couple of weeks ago was an outstanding event and a fantastic way to launch this new competition. The competitors have now had a taste of competing for the huge amount of prize money on offer and the battle will no doubt be fierce in the second leg – to be held tomorrow night under lights in the indoor arena at Sydney International Equestrian Centre (SIEC).
