Junior Regional Tetrathlon Championships

This is a team competition between the four nations and was held in beautiful weather in Moreton Morrell College.  The Welsh had a team of 5 girls and a team of 5 boys selected from all over Wales.  Area 5 was well represented by B Leah Lamb (Flint & Denbigh) and Lana Booth (Ch H North)in the girls team and Harry Taylor(Ch H South) and Freddie James (East Ch) for the boys.  

The XC was up to height, unforgiving and really tested the rider rather than the horse.  All competitors did extremely well in such good company.  The Welsh Girls’ Team came 2nd and Lana Booth won Individually with a great shoot of 940 and clear XC.  Freddie James competing in his first big competition came fifth with a shoot of 900 and 1362 XC. Harry taylor was 8th.  Leah lamb doing her first big competition ever, swam exceptionally well and tackled the XC with her sual focus scoring a creditable 1000 points. 

Well done All.
