Another successful outing at Mid Surrey PC for the mounted games teams seniors of Lucy Greenwood Bonnie Thompson Phoebe Kenward Sinead Paddy and Darcey Foss were a fantastic 6th and the mini team of Caitlin Paddy Frankie Chart Poppy and Chloe Kenward were a brilliant 3rd. Fabulous determined riding from all and so lovely and supportive to each other well done girls.
At the championships, Clarissa with Cash jumped brilliantly in one of the biggest courses they have jumped but annoyingly spooked at the photographer which resulted in an unlucky pole at the start of the round but then jumped the rest clear.

Half Term Report:
ODE Crawley and Horsham
Well done to everyone who did Stone Hall, Balcome today. It was a tricky XC course and a very small SJ arena but everyone had a great time, finished the XC safely and all supported each other! The team spirt was awesome!! Team ‘Polos’ who were Grace Gibbs, Grace Thompson, Lucia Mayhew and Katie Hale finished a fantastic 6th. Big ‘shout out’ to Grace Gibbs who was individual 7th!! Then the ‘Rolos’ who were just out of the placings got a wonderful 8th place consisting off Harrison Chart, Olivia Jones, Jack Dellier and Bonnie Thompson. For them all it was a big step up and it was Jack’s proper first one day event!! So absolutely amazing considering 4 teams were eliminated and there weren’t many clears XC. The kids were amazing today and such a wonderful support to each other!! Well done team Surrey Union
ODE Chiddingfold Pony Club
