PC Championships Aug 2016

The Beaufort Novice Dressage Team of Milly Harvey, Poppy Richardson, Lexi Hart and Georgie Gay travelled up to Cholmondley Park with Laura Warren representing our club in the Open Class.

The Novice riders went first and all rode good tests with individual placings in sections of 10th for Milly , 6th for Lexi  and a win for Georgie . Poppy  rode a solid test but just out of the placings this time. The team achieved a fantastic fourth place and Georgie rode another lovely test in the ride off in front of three judges to be awarded a score of 73.13% and third place overall.

Laura rode in the Elite competition that day – a level (or maybe two!) above where Boycie is comfortable but achieving a mark of 63.09 in the medium test for 7th place.

The next day those riding in the novice eventing were busy with that and Laura rode her open test for fourth place in her section. Thanks to Sarah Stewart for all her help working with Laura to allow her to be riding at this level.

Thanks to Vic Bailey for support and warm up help. Lucinda for making the trip to support us and to the  Curtis family for masterminding the team barbeque. It was lovely to have time to socialise with many of us staying a night or two extra for this purpose and to enjoy the overlap between the dressage and event team. Great to see Rhian and Lesley joining in the socialising when they had any free time around helping the eventers .

Hoping for as many qualifications, or more next year! Particularly for those who nearly made it at intermediate level this year!
