Many congratulations to the 7 Tickham members who competed on Sunday at the Eridge One Day Event. For some of our members it was the first time they had ever done a one day event, so a special well done to them. The first team to compete was Timmy Bentley, Jessica de Lucy, Harry Foulds-Brant and Imy Simms. The first phase was the dressage; Harry was pleased with Annie as he successfully got both right canter leads, Timmy rode well keeping his cool on a fizzy Daisy, Imy navigated well to remain in the arena and Jessica used plenty of leg to keep going! Dressage done, we moved onto the show jumping and cross country phases. Timmy, Jessica and Harry all rode brilliant double clears and Imy only had minor faults, having clung on hard at the first fence.
The second team of Harry Foulds-Brant, Joseph Henry and Charlotte Page tackled the bigger course. Luck was not with them today, but they didn’t let it dampen their spirits and they are hungry for the next competition.
Team: Timmy, Jessica, Harry and Imy 2nd Individual: Jessica 2nd and Harry 5th
Great results WELL DONE and if anyone else would like to have a go at eventing please contact Nikki Bentley.
