National Championships 2018 

 

It was a very busy weekend for the club at the National Championships.

First to go early on Saturday morning was the 80cm SJ team. Charlotte was first to go and jumped a lovely round just rolling a pole. Shirley and Julia were next up jumping two clear rounds and with Joe Mace just touching the first part of the double the team finished the first round on a creditable 4f. The same four riders then had to head over to the style SJ rings and all pulled up some stylish rounds. Joe was very busy and then had to have a quick change of horse before he headed over to the dressage ring. Solly not feeling like dressage on the day sadly putting in a few additional unwanted movements!

 

Whilst this was all going on Isabella was busy over at the dressage arena riding her three tests. Despite not thinking the first one went well she then produced some amazing scores to finish 1st in two arenas and 2nd in the Elementary! This meant she was crowed overall dressage champion! Holly and Bella taking all of this in their stride at the presentation whilst collecting a mountain of rosettes and sashes!

 

Our two individuals Rosie and Charna were busy over at the SJ rings. Rosie doing brilliantly with the classy Alwyn coming 5th in the 110cm. Charna had a couple of fences down in the 100cm first round and opted to have an ice cream and sit out the second round!
