Then novice team consisting of ; Megan ,Sophie ,Elysia and Ellie C.
After the dressage down came the rain which was at its worst at the end of the SJ for megan :) but she still went clear unfortunately it didnt stop raining for the x counrty either.This made the x country phase very interesting for alot of the competitors!

The results are as follows:
Megan Rogerson came 7th in her section with a dressage score of 24.2 clear show jumping .
Sophie Stanley did a really good dressage 27.5 and clear show jumping but unfortunately was unseated xc so retired.

We politely remind all members that it is a condition of camp attendance that the member or one of his/her family help out at least twice at the Hickstead Shows and that we require as many members and their families as possible to help at our interbranch show.  This is our main fundraiser and if it cannot continue due to lack of physical resources, the branch will suffer hugely.
