Few Scoops and I entered the Area 5 British Riding Club Showjumping competition with a team from Misterton and District Riding Club. We entered the 90cm competition with the hope that we may qualify for the NAF champs @ Lincoln Showground in September.
Each team member had to jump two rounds, with a course change & heightened fences for the second round. All jumping & time faults for each member were added to give a final score. As the team with the lowest score, we won the competition & qualified for the championships!
Double Clear Round and Double Winners!
There was also an individual competition in which only those with 2 clear rounds jumped off against each other, against the clock, across a shortened course. Out of the entire field there were only 2 competitors with double clear rounds - I was one of them! Having already qualified to go to Lincoln as part of the team I used the jump off round to practice tight & fast turns. We had a pole down so the other competitor only needed a clear round to win. Unluckily for them they knocked a pole on the penultimate fence but they had taken the round steadily and we had gone faster. This meant that we were the Area 5 champions in both the team and individual event!!
Coming Up Next
Our next event is the Trailblaizers National Championships from 3rd-5th August. Wish us luck!
