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.
Our two riders did us proud competing at the combined training championships in Aston Le Walls. Tayne rode a lovely dressage test and then had an unlucky couple of poles in the jumping on Saturday, whilst Jess had a challenging dressage test followed by a confident SJ class, only taking one unlucky pole, and due to the difficulties others had in the jumping phase this resulted in a 3rd place position! Fantastic achievements for both our riders and more wonderful Gipping team work!
Please let us know if you wish to compete in the Area 14 & 8 Horse Trials on the 26th June at Poplar Park. All details on attached schedule including the dates of the championships that this a qualifier for in August, so best to check you are available for both!

What a fabulous day had by all at the Combined Training qualifiers today, with lots of personal achievements to be proud of! Hannah started the day off early with her Team Prelim test, followed by Danielle Lawrence also for the team with her Prelim test. Freya was next to go as an individual junior competitor, followed by Jess also competing as an individual. They all rode nice tests and came down to support the Novice test riders Tayne and Danielle Noble who were next to go! There was a bit of a break before the jumping started, but once again Hannah was one of the first to ride securing a lovely clear round, and a final individual placing of 7th, Danielle L was next and her young horse was rather excited by the whole affair, but she rode him fabulously and was just very unlucky touching the last pole! A very pleasing final 6th place for their partnership! Freya went next and jumped a super clear round, giving her a well deserved 2nd place. It was then the turn of Danielle N and us spectators were carried away enjoying the sunshine and missed her entry, but we certainly heard her exit as she was cheering and so happy to have gone clear, especially as she had an unlucky refusal and dismount at the Int SJ qualifiers - her beaming smile was reward enough but she also finished a very respectful 7th place individually. Tayne went next and continued our streak of clear rounds and with the best dressage score in our club, finished on 29 overall and a well deserved 2nd place. The very last rider of the day was our Jess and after a sticky start, they found a rhythm on the course and completed our set of clear rounds, and took 1st place! Finally the team results were out and we had team 6th overall! Lots of cheers and smiles for another lovely day out together. Our thanks go to Charlotte and Amanda Salmon who spent their afternoon volunteering and pole picking in the arena, we appreciate your efforts for this and the support you offered all our riders! Well done all xx Jill
