Jamie Butt recently competed at the PC Tetrathlon Championships at Bishop Burton College Yorkshire. Jamie won the Intermediate Boys with a 94 point lead so took both the National and International titles. Jamie was second in the shoot with 920, had a clear XC ride over a beautifully built but challenging course. Jamie smashed his PB with a run of 6.46 over 2k coming in 2nd position (beaten by 1 Sec). Jamie was also part of the Area 11 team which came 5th. And in the English Team that came 2nd.

It was a fantastic week with the rest of the Area 11 competitors and they all had a great time together and at the “usual” party on the last night!


Fantastic Victory for the Surrey Union Novice Dressage Team at the National PC Championships at Kelsall Hill, Cheshire.

The team of Jenna Emmerton on Blackthorn Ptarmigan (individual second), Katie Hale on Windleway Stars and Stripes (individual tenth), Millie Gover on Unistar (individual sixth) and Hattie Ford on Archie (individual seventh) excelled to emerge victorious in a highly competitive field of 42 teams. Many Congratulations to all the girls and supporting parents for such a stellar effort all round with great team spirit.

Many congratulations also to Millie Gover who finished an excellent sixth in the eventing championships.
