Horse Trials Qualifiers – A big well done to all our teams and riders at the Horse Trials on Sunday 7th July at Somerford Park Farm. Congratulations to Lesley White who won the Senior 80 overall, the Senior 90 team of Jacqui Brown, Sarah Kranz, Vicki Pye and Jess Grainger, and to Zoe Hill our Junior 100 who have all qualified for the Championships at the start of August. Well ridden everyone.

Show Jumping Qualifiers we sent one Senior 80 team, one Senior 90 team and one Style Jumping team to Bold Heath on Saturday 13th July. Our Senior 80 team with Jess Grainger, Rachel Laing and Vicki Pye came 2nd – Jess gained 1st place individually and qualified for the National Championships at Lincoln, and Rachel came 6th. All this despite being a team of three – well done ladies! Our Senior 90 team with Lesley White, Jess Grainger, Vicki Pye and Jayne Shutt also came 2nd – individual honours to Lesley who came 2nd individually and qualified for Lincoln, and Jess who came 4th. Our Style Jumping team of Jess, Rachel and Jayne came 6th, with Rachel coming 4th individually. Cracking results!

Dressage Qualifiers – a late bit of news from our Dressage qualifiers held in June … Congratulations to Caroline Broomhead for qualifying for Lincoln in the Medium Dressage!


Saturday’s competition was the fourth in our series and was run in conjunction with BHS North West. We were delighted to run qualifiers for their Dressage Championships alongside our classes again this year. We had an experiment with tests in the long arena and it seems that you approve – as entries were up in these classes. Lovely to see the regulars and to welcome the newbies, we hope you come again. Our next Dressage & Combined Training is on Saturday 14th September.

OPEN SHOW – 14th July 2019

What a busy Show! Members eagerly collecting points towards Stars and our own club trophies, and non-members who have come to experience the friendly atmosphere at our shows. The Stars qualification period has now ended and we are in the process of contacting potential invitees. We will let you all know who is going when it has been finalised. We ran a Fabulous Forties section and would like to thank Baileys Horse Feeds and the BHS for the goody bags. Congrats to Dee Stevenson who was the winner and Lisa Lindell who was reserve. You can collect your prizes at the next show. Thank you to everyone who came and helped or competed, it really was a lovely day.
