Ben Newman who won the Junior Individual 80cms Horse trials at the Area 9 qualifier at West Wilts in July, went on to win at the National Championships, held at Swalcliffe. Ben and his horse Midnight did an excellent dressage test to score 28.5, before jumping a fabulous double clear, adding only 0.8 time faults cross country.
The Area competition saw Morgan Kent collect an individual third placing, having also completed a double clear, with a few speeding points…..
The junior team, which included Sophie and Rebecca collected a 3rd place.
The senior event team, sported the new WGRC colours thanks to Trow Lane Stud. The 80cms team consisted of Jo Manning, Wendy Lapingdon, Becky Warner’s and Kathy Hancox came in sixth, with an individual third for Jo Manning and Llanbabo Liberty.
Lottie Parkin and Abbie Robins both competed as individuals in the 90cms and Abbie and Adrian the second were sixth.
Amy Chapham and Trozulan competed in the 100, and although the pair made light of the cross country the show jump phase was not their friend.
WGRC also took control of the scoring with a team in the office and Phil Howell on the quad.
what a team….
