DERBY NOW ON 30TH NOVEMBER AT GRANSHA EQUESTRIAN CENTRE
NORTH DOWN RIDERS SHINE AT PONY CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS!
Well done to all our riders who competed at the various National Pony Club Championships in England.
Our polocrosse team (Team Neild), of Ruben, Archie and Tilly Neild travelled to Cholmondeley Castle, Cheshire, for the novice polocrosse championships, and won Class 4 The Brookes Mini Championships. What a brilliant result! And as an added bonus, the NFU Mutual Best Sportsman of the tournament was won by Archie Nield – this is the second year in a row that Archie has won this title. Well done Archie and the rest of the Neilds.
Our senior games team also competed at Cholmondeley Castle, finishing an excellent 3rd place. Well done to Rose Gregg, James Reid, Ruben Neild, Sophie Robinson and John Hamilton!
Zara Mulholland was our sole representative in the National Intermediate Tetrathlon Championships held at Bishop Burton College, Yorkshire. Unfortunately a gun jam resulted in an unusually low shooting score for Zara, leaving her further down the table than might have been expected. But an excellent opportunity for Zara, who thoroughly enjoyed her time away.
At the National Novice Championships at Kelsall Hill, Cheshire, our dressage team of Christine McVeigh, Issy Riley, Claire Ireland and Jaz Vollands finished 16th with Jaz taking a 3rd place. Katie Riley competed as an individual and came 19th in her arena. Well done to our dressage divas!Our lone show jumper, Claire Ireland, took the place by storm, going last in the jump off to take the title by 1 second! What a star!
