At the beginning of October lots of our members were out and about at Cobham PC’s show jumping competition held at Merrist Wood. This was a ‘first’ for quite a few of them and we’re delighted to report that they did themselves and the branch proud.
In the Teeny Tots class our first time team of Johnny, Isabelle, Darcey Blaze and Harriet did a brilliant job with four lovely clear rounds resulting in them being placed 3rd. This was followed by the Tiny Tots Scurry in which Isabelle did a great speedy round to be placed 6th. In the Tiny Tots team class our second new team of Annabel H, Isabelle, and Darcey Blaze went on to produce another fab result to be placed 4th! It was a brilliant end to the first day of the event.
On day two, the first class – Dengie Debut saw Dolly K on her lovely mare KL Graffiti secure 4th place. The next challenge of the day was the team class where we sported another new team combo of Mollie I on her new horse Beauty, Dolly, Imogen and our stalwart Georgie H on Paddy. They did a great job and were just pipped to 7th place by a whisker. Georgie then went on to challenge a place in the Accumulator class, where she had us all willing her on to the last fence – the Joker, she rode with great determination, but Paddy saw past the wavy planks and spied the sharks that were lurking beneath! With some very quick thinking Georgie diverted to the nearest high scoring fence to complete their round with style and determination.
A huge well done to all our members, you did a brilliant job.
