BRC Horse Trials Championships

Well done to all those who represented ECCTG at the BRC Horse Trials Championships this weekend!

The 80 team of Nicki Toomer (7th), Jules Humphreys-Peck (10th), Sue O’Leary and Jane Valentine – got four solid double clears to take 4th place as a team

The 100 team of Ashley Daniel (4th), Lauren Moss (5th), Hannah Barnett (6th) and Amanda Dakin also secured 4th place for the team after a very close contest. Hannah also won the award for closest to the optimum time; by dint of being bang on it!

Georgia Drummond rode for ECCTG on the Area 20 100+ team and jumped a great double clear to help them secure team 5th place too.

A fantastic weekend for all – well done!
