Wins for SWDG at Area dressage
The junior, senior prelim and senior open teams each won their classes at Area dressage on 29th July at Aldon. An absolutely fantestic result! Well done to everyone who competed and all those who organised and helped to make the day happen. More
4th in team SJ at Yeovil show
Well done to Kirsty Cox, Charlie Usher, Sophie Fowler and Lucy Greenwood for competing in the team relay SJ competition at Yeovil Show. Unfortunately Grady (Lucy's horse) slowed us down with her waving to the crowd but well done for helping each other out and representing the club. Thank you for those of you who came to watch and support.
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.
