The journey down to Aston Le Wolds this weekend for the Sen 80 team of Dawn Richardson, Claire Needham, Ame Tarling and Sheila Togerson competed at the Arena Eventing Championships . On Sunday afternoon it was time for the Junior 90s- Amelia Hardy, Casey Causier, Elizabeth Brown and Isobel Wood. The journey out of Yorkshire was definitely worth it - what a great result
We had a lovely day on Saturday at the showcross and many thanks go to all those who helped again. Sue Hillyer, Val Hobson, Lorraine Holmes, Julie Martin, Maria, Louise and apologies if I've forgotten anyone. It was good to see people stay to help clear the arena at the end as it made it so much easier.
Charlie Armstrong reports:
Joey is my 7yro Irish sports horse he's a cheeky monkey and like to keep me on my toes. He's taught me so much in the 3yrs that I've owned him he isn't an easy ride and has knocked my dreams so many times but has only made me more determined.
He's taught me that hard work is key to achieving anything and it's the journey we're on together.
When I first bought him, he was terrified of a pole on the floor now I'm jumping up to a metre. He is such a loving horse with a very unique personality many times going by the name of 'dipshit'. I am extremely lucky have him and I will never part with him, we'll agree our goals together and treasure every memory along the way.
What a day.
Team and Individual first place for the 70 crew!
Even when winner Tracy came to me and said I went clear but too slow so no chance!!!!!
Well done team.
Sheila Rogerson reports: A good day at Epworth EC for the combined challenge qualifier with lots of ADRC riders.
Bobby was great and our team came 3rd.
Great clinic by Christie Batty at Fairoaks. From polework to up to a metre everyone had a great time with some big smiles and some wonderful achievement. Look out for the next one.
Lynn and Linda having a great time in the sun at Wintersett and Haw Park Woods!
Sarah Steele - Last Friday I completed at the National Showjumping Championships at Stoneleigh In the Grade 1 Para Showjumping class.
I won with a double clear On my fabulous horse Topwood Teddy (Ted)
Sheila Rogerson - We were the entertainment offering on Sunday at the British TREC Champs as I couldn’t stop when leading Bobby through the led corridor and ended up at the bottom of the hill. A round of applause from spectators changed to gasps when Bobby decided he wasn’t staying in the immobility as he took 2 paces and popped over the rope and headed up over the hill back to Rusty in his corral. We had been quick enough earlier so I got him back did the final obstacle and through the finish flags without getting time penalties. 6 hours out orienteering on Saturday wasn’t slowing him down
Amelia Hardy and Tom Thumb from the area four Style jumping qualifiers. "I was so proud of Tom Thumb at the Style and Jumping Qualifier, only his 2nd event representing the Club and he jumped lovely and gained a qualification for the Lincs Champs" Amelia Hardy
Sam Webster - Super pleased we went to Camden Equestrian for the style jumping in the end - nearly backed out due to the forecast heat - Rabbit was a star and popped round gaining us 2nd place and qualifying for the championship at Lincoln Showground on the 3rd Sept
Our club is friendly, enthusiastic and successful, with it’s members as its biggest asset. We all support and help one another in the ADRC and aim to learn about, compete and enjoy our equine friends. 2020 Was a very difficult year for all.
Let's hope that 2021 will turn out to be better.
