Congratulations to all our riders today at the National Dressage Qualifiers, you really danced your socks off and did the club proud. It was a sticky start with a few withdrawals and changes for injury but we still managed to turn out our teams (with hats ;0) )
The photo here is our junior dressage team who achieved joint 1st place to qualify for championships! Sadly they had run out of rosettes, so they will follow! Amber Dickson placed 1st in her novice class Kathryn Dickson Megan Dickson placed 3rd in her prelim. Jessica Baldwin placed 1st in her prelim and Charlotte Amanda Salmon placed 5th - super results!
Our Junior Riding Test placed a fantastic 2nd place. With an individual 4th placing for Jessica and 6th place for Hannah Baldwin. Well done team!
Our individual juniors for Intro were all in the placings too. Freya Clare Button 6th, Lucie Claire Osborne 4th and Hannah Baldwin 3rd. (An extra well done to Lucie for her first outing thanks to the wonderful Dallas on loan from Emma Jardine - he did you proud and looked after her very well!)
Mary (Hayley) King competed as an individual junior in Prelim 7 and placed 2nd - another super result!
Our seniors did really well too, with our open team all placing 4th in their respective classes, securing them a 6th overall as a team - well done to Tayne Louise Eaton, Sarah Ahrens and Nicola Taylor
Unfortunately our prelim senior team didn’t place this time, however there was a 2nd Individual place for Tayne Louise Eaton and a 6th for Sarah Ahrens so really well done!
I didn’t stop running around today, so haven’t many photos to share, so please do share your highlights from today in the comments, I would love to see them as we all looked very smart!
I was so proud to represent each and every member today, it was another super Gipping team effort.
One final thanks must go to Iain Saunders and James Button, as they spent their afternoon as scoring assistants, taking our turn to help proceedings so that everyone could compete! They deserve a pint tonight!
The ODE individual results are in, although provisional at this point. Our junior 90 riders did really well, with a 3rd placing for Isla Mattock Vicky Mattock and a 6th placing for Rebekah Nicholson Rachel Nicholson - well done ladies and we will get your rosettes to you!
A final well done to all of our competitors, and thank you for representing our club, and we hope you had a lovely day!
