Arena Eventing Qualifier

A great day out on Saturday 1st October at Kelsall Hill for Area 20 and ECCTG teams. Keen competition with very close scores – time critical – one or two (or more) of our keener combinations a touch fast (!) but lots of lovely rounds.

Our 70 team were 2nd, 80 teams 2nd and 4th, 90 team 3rd and finishing with a flourish our 100 team were 1st and are off to the Championships early next year!

Individual honours for Ashley Daniels (1st in the 100), Nicki Waddup (3rd in the 100), Jan Freeman (3rd in the 80), Olivia Peck (5th in the 80) and Brook Howells (5th in the 100) – many congrats to all, and thanks to Delamere Riding Club and Area 20 officials for organising before and during the day.

Ciara is helping me as she broke her leg on Sunday!  She is bored in the evenings, so she can help me – I now have no time at all! 😊

Just a note to add that there is a helper rota provided to each club so we will spread this out between all riders to make it fair (it normally works out roughly 1 hour per person and we make around your times!).

Flu vaccination policy is per BRC rules; 12 months, except for those due after 1st September 2022, which have an up to 3 month extension due to the vaccine shortage
