Area 20 Combined Training Qualifier Report, May 4th, Llanymynech

All roads led to LLanymynech on Saturday 4th May 2013 for the British Riding Clubs Combined Training Qualifier – a newish competition involving teams of four; two Prelim tests with 75cms show jumping, and two Novice tests with 85 cms SJ.  Our two teams, Juliet Foden, Sally Vickers, Lucy Filby, Rebecca Bush and  Zoe Beresford, Rachel Large and Libby Richards and intrepid helper Sarah Irvine (hope Walter on top form again very soon) finished 4th and 7th respectively (15 teams competing) so respectable performances, with individual Dressage placings for Lucy Filby, Rebecca Bush, Rachel Large and Juliet Foden – and nearly all clear show jumping rounds.  East Clwyd ran a very pleasant competition – not at all pressured – you did your dressage, then got ready at your leisure for your SJ and made your way to the SJ – so never too  many warming up, and plenty of room anyway – big show jumping area on grass – caused quite a few problems though thankfully not for us!!   Ground firm but not impossible – Dressage judges smiley even when you forgot your test and missed out 2 dropping into (forward into should one say..) walks – so in all a pretty decent day out in the country!
