Badminton Dressage Championships – 29th July 2015


Wednesday 29 July 2015

On Wednesday 29 July we took two teams – one junior and one senior to the Badminton Dressage Championships. The junior team consisting of Flora Harrant- Lambert, Sasha Bird and Millie Kold had a very early start being first on at 8.30am. The team did very well with Flora scoring 67.92% Sasha 62.71% and Millie 70% – a tense wait for the results put the juniors in 4th place, narrowly missing out on the coveted championship plaque. The Seniors, Claudia Wallis, Sasha Green and Georgie Gay, followed later that morning and just pipped the younger ones, coming third place in their section but amazingly their scores were almost a duplicate of the earlier team with Georgie scoring 67.71%, Sasha 62.92% and Claudia 70.42%.

The highest scoring rider from each team then went into the ride off in the afternoon. The weather had been threatening all day but luckily held off until the last competitor was riding their test and then the heavens opened! Millie and Claudia went through to the ride off where Millie finished just out of the ribbons in 9th place and Claudia came a well deserved 2nd place overall.

A good day was had by all and with the wonderful atmosphere in Badminton Park it was an event that we will all remember – especially the senior team who have their plaques to remind them!
