Royal Windsor Virtual Dressage Competition

As posted earlier this week Ellie Jones (from CHS branch) was selected to be one of 4 riders to represent England at the Royal Windsor Pony Club virtual home international dressage competition. It was live streamed with commentary and judged on Sunday.

Ellie did a great test to score over 74%, which put the team in the lead after the 1st round. The rest of Team England did some brilliant tests too to take the win overall, which is fantastic.

A big well done Ellie 👏👏

Dressage Home International at Virtual Windsor

Congratulations to ELLIE JONES who has been selected to be one of a team of 4 PC members representing England competing at the Virtual Dressage Home International Competition in place of Windsor.

Ellie is 15 and is a member of Cheshire Hunt South Branch – now the largest Branch in Area 5. She has her C+ test and is the Novice member of the team.  Ellie has been trained by Elizabeth Lyonette, an Area 5 B/AH assessor. Ellie is competing on a  relatively new horse which she acquired just before lockdown so the combination is in its infancy due to Covid restricting Pony Club activities.

We  wish her Good Luck.  The competition will be live streamed on Sunday, September 27th in the afternoon.

Area 5 Dressage Results

Result sheets from the Area 5 Dressage Competition Sat 20th July 2019

On behalf of Area 5 members/Branches – thank you to Huw and Bethan Jones for a very well run Area Dressage competition today at your farm – an ideal venue. The rain just about stayed away and I hope there was not too much mess.  Your team of helpers – and Iona of course – were superb, as were the scorers behind the scenes and Penny Wingfield too.

Also, thank you to all those Branches which supported the competition.

Good Luck when you go to the Champs.
