Championships - 7th Aug
Mixed weekend for our riders at the Horse Trials Champs. Two fantastic placings for 80 team riders Lauren and Kate who came 6th and 8th respectively and lots learnt for debut rider Babs and Helen over a very difficult XC. 100 rider Claire had a fantastic dressage, but it unfortunately wasn't to be XC. The club are immensely proud of all the riders, and we know they've all had a fantastic time away no matter the result.
