What a fun day of competition we had at Wix today for the Novice SJ competition. The juniors were first to go and Freya was our first rider with a lovely clear round on Floss. Jess was next to go and had an educational round for Robbie and he is really starting to get the hang of jumping with just one unlucky pole. Brooke went next on Woody, and as a new partnership we didn’t know what to expect, but they rode a superb clear round. Last to go was Kayla and Bobby and they just quietly got on with their jobs and rode a beautiful clear round which was a delight to watch - so we were very excited heading into the second rounds!
Round 2 saw 4 more smashing rounds from all partnerships to win the class! With Individual placings for Kayla 1st, Brooke, 2nd, Freya 7th and Jess 10th - what a start!
The seniors followed straight after and also had some pleasing rounds! Harriet started us off with her young horse in training and unfortunately she was startled at the final jump by the juniors cheering for prize giving, taking a pole, but Harriet was happy how she rode! Kerry was next to go, and after a nasty fall at Geldeston where Maddie landed on top of her, she was just hoping for a safe round, which she got and went clear for a bonus too! Hannah went next with Bluey, but he didn’t feel right today and pulled out halfway through, well done Hannah for making the call, there is always another day! Finally, Alison took the wonderful Buddy round, and they jumped a lovely clear with a few time penalties, which confused us as he held a lovely steady canter the whole way!
Second rounds all went well too, with just a couple of unlucky poles, so no individual placings today, but a team 6th for the seniors!
We had a great time, and everyone cheered one another on, so can’t ask for more than that!
Sarah Wills rode later in the day for her individual 80 class, and whilst we couldn’t wait to see her round, we followed the online results and hope she was pleased with her 8th placing!
Good luck juniors heading onto Champs next year at Arena UK subject to invitation from BRC.
