CHAMPS UPDATE 21/8/18

We are very proud to have lots of members qualified for Championships this year.  Thanks to all the parents who made sure you were in the right place at the right time and all our lovely instructors who helped you, and in particular our Chief Keely.  Good luck to Lara and Nelly (Open Eventing), Jess (Show Jumping) Maisy, Sophie, Red and Josie (Regional SJ), Liv, Fred, Laura (Tet),  Isabella (Regional Dressage), Fred (Novice Eventing)  and Red (Regional Eventing).  Have fun!

Well done to Fred and Maisie currently at Pony Club Champs. A 32.8 dressage and DOUBLE clear in the Novice Eventing Championship, just a few time penalties to add to give them 14th place. Well done!!!

Well done too to Jess and Murphy, who had one clear round but sadly a couple of poles in the 2nd round to put them out of the rosettes, a fabulous time was had by their family though despite a blown out tyre on the way home.  Full report here

Update from Area 11 rep “Day 4 of The Pony Club Championships and the Open Eventing reminded us why this competition is so much more than a CCI*. Designer Alec Lochore, who will be responsible for the Tokyo Olympics, took good note of the instruction to build a course of BE Novice height but BE intermediate complexity. Lara Jackson (AV) was clear xc for 21st, whilst Nelly Pearse (AV) picked up one stop.”  Well done girls.
