We sent 2 teams and a Junior individual 90 competitor (Issy H) to Bicton on 10th November – a decent day after all the rain we’ve been having! The 90 team – consisting of Charlie Usher on Otto, Charlotte Walters on Frodo, Caity Smith on Olive and Lucy Greenwood on her inexperienced young horse Tinka. They all did very well leading to a team win and qualifying for the Championships at Aston-le-Walls in March! Well done team!
The 100 team also did very well with Catherine Kaar on Tango, Connor Pullin on Duke both jumping well timed clears for 5th and 7th place respectively. Tracy Scammell on Jess and Carolyn Price on Charlie completed the team but for various reasons (satnav issues for Carolyn!) were excluded from the team result. Tracy was also team manager for the day providing support for everyone both before and on the day.
The event was run by Sid & Otter Riding Club and we thanked them for organising this on behalf of Area 12. We can’t forget our loyal helps and supporters who did the arena party duties starting at 9am! They were Jack and Stevie (Caity’s and Charlotte’s boyfriends) and Kate Walters. Many thanks!
