AREA 5 CHAMPIONSHIPS 2015
Area 5 really stood out at the Championships this year. The achievements were phenomenal and the members were a credit to their Trainers, Parents and Team members. A huge Well Done to you all. You can be very proud of yourselves. For the smaller Branches, it is an achievement just to qualify to get there. Having done that, it is another challenge to get horse and rider there – fit and well with all shoes on! All sorts of things can go wrong, but once there and competing in the Championship atmosphere – it is something to remember for a long time.
These are some of the amazing results that members of Area 5 achieved. The list is long and I apologise for not mentioning all of them.
