Great successes for SWDG at Area SJ
80cm Team won with Pippa and Zara 4th and Charlie and Otto 4th Individuals. The 90cm team also won, sadly Sophie`s horse went lame so withdrew, but Carolyn and Lemon won individually with Pippa and Rambo 3rd. In the style jumping, in which nobody was sure of what they were doing, the team was 2nd with Caroline and The Mask 3rd and Charlie & Otto were 4th in the 85cm section, Pippa and Zara were 3rd in the 75cm section. An enormous well done to all and great to qualify in the Style as well as the 80cm SJ for the regional championships at Hartpury. Great team work, all supporting each other.
Dressage and SJ at Holbrook on 18th June
A very warm day, but many happy faces, lots of first timers `having a go` (horses and riders) and great to see so many new members. Well done everyone and many thanks to Fiona Spiller for judging, Barbara Rawlings for writing, Mary Tucker for running the show jumping, Charlie Usher for stewarding and making the flapjacks, Alice Greenwood for scoring and building jumps and Sara Greenwood for organising.
