Area 6 Showjumping championship qualifiers – update!

Hosted by the Rufford at Epworth Showground, the ground was perfect and the sun shone! Belvoir saw some great results across all the heights and really super team spirit ❤️
In the 70 a double clear qualified Samuel and then Sydney also qualified in the 70+. In the 110 Abigail came 4th so picked up a Q ticket to Nationals as an individual.
Team-wise what an amazing job from our fabulous 80 & 90 team members today, who all rode their socks off across two rounds in warm conditions & in very competitive fields.
The 80cm team, of Heath, Anna, Alice & Lucy in the Belvoir Reds took the win, out of 21 teams! One of only two teams to end on 0 after 8 rounds.
And an incredible 2nd place from the 90cm team the Belvoir Blues, Olivia, Imogen, Tabby and Millie who are also off to the Champs!
Well done everyone & to the mums and dads who work so hard to help make it happen. Another great day for Belvoir.
