What a great time was had by all at a Tetrathlon organised by Iona Pierce (helped by husband Gareth and daughter Rhian) at their farm Plas Dolben, Llangynhafal, Denbighshire. There was a lovely atmosphere and the weather took no notice of the awful forecast.
There were competitors from Flint and Denbigh, Gwynedd, WWW, East Cheshire and Cheshire Hunt South.
The ground was too wet to use the XC so the riding took place at near by Dyfnog, Denbigh by kind permission of Jane Gough Roberts and the riders had great fun doing the Arena Eventing course on the Saturday.
There were some notable achievements. In the Mini Girls, Leah Lamb had the best shoot of the whole competition with an amazing score of 960, Scarlett had top swim (4 lengths 19m) in the class and Imogen ran the fastest doing 1000m in a time of 4min 20 secs. Imogen won the class, Leah was 3rd and Scarlett was 4th.
Mini Boys was dominated by Archie Lynch with a total score of 4350, swimming no less than 6 lengths 4m. William Stone was 2nd, running 1000m in under 4 minutes. Keep it up boys!
We had some FnD first timers in the Beginner’s Class – Gemma Burgoyne, Constance Wight and Lili Evans. The class was won by Lili who had top shoot and run. Well done all.
There were 6 teams in the competition. The FnD Flint Team won convincingly (William, Archie, Daisy Stone and Leah L) with a score of 12176, 2nd team was FnD Denbigh Team (Imogen K, Orla K, Scarlett O and Elsie Lynch) with a score of 11026.
Thank you to all who helped including Penny Wingfield who travelled from Aberconwy to do the scoring.
