Fernie Team a Brilliant Second Place at Burghley Team Show Jumping

Our team of Annie Kier, India Walker and Annie and Lucy Frankham came a brilliant second place to the Burghley Pony Club in the Burghley Horse Trials Pony Club Team Showjumping – cheered on by a large and noisy crowd of Fernie supporters.   Thirty six pony clubs entered teams and the Burghley Pony Club were unassailable as the only team to ride a double clear. 

The Fernie were one of only eight teams to go clear in the first round and then were the fastest team to finish on four points in the second round which was over a shortened, raised course against the clock.

Congratulations!!!
