Despite relocation to Tushingham Arena (due to the weather), and last minute substitutions, we all arrived fit and raring to go showjumping!
The Style jumping team of Libby Richards, Hannah Leech, Brook Butler and Lucy Filby all went very well and took 2nd place, with Hannah also placed 4th individually.
The two novice teams also went well, both finished the first round on 4 faults. The second round was quite big and there were plenty of casualties throughout, but they all got round for 8 faults or less, and finished 4th and 5th. The star of our show was Nikki Phillips who jumped double clear and was 3rd individually – a great result!
The intermediate team – Brook Butler, Lucy Filby, Abi Unwin and Hannah Mulliner were fantastic! They won the competition outright without the need for a jump-off, and so they are heading for the National Championships at Lincoln in September. Hannah Mulliner jumped the only double clear over an enormous track to take the individual honours – well done Hannah and Sophie!
The weather was very kind and we enjoyed lovely sunshine all day. The rain only returned as we descended indoors for the presentation of awards!
