FOTH news!

So last week 8 hardy ECCTG members, armed with helpers, battled the elements and drove to Berriewood in Shropshire to represent the club in a combined show jumping and XC competition!

A big well done to the winning 100 team of Georgia Drummond, Ashley Daniel, Hannah Mulliner and Sarah Spearing who between them managed 3 double clears to take the win…..As well as the team 1st, Ashley did the double to get an individual first, coming in a couple of seconds near optimum time.

In the 90cm the team of Ashley Daniel, Hannah Mulliner, Sue O’Leary and Jane Valentine picked up a few show jumping faults missing the team win,  but all of the team jumped clear over a very decent cross country track, to collect team 3 rd team place. Sue lived up to her reputation for good time management, finishing with a double clear just 0.4 seconds over the optimum time. This gave her a first place individually in the 90!

The 80 individuals Holly Large and Juliet Foden also put in great performances  to complete.

So Sue and the 100 team will all be off to Aston Le Walls sometime in May for the championships…..just the winter to get through first!

As well as the riders, the support team and helpers were all fabulous and much appreciated for being there. A big thanks to the chief organiser, Libby, who couldn’t make the day but made sure the entries and helpers were all in order !
