WGRC Juniors compete at Area 9 Dressage
It was a lovely day – crisp and sunny which makes a change from the usual howling gale we get at Leyland Court. The junior competition was not the busiest as several clubs (us included) have had some of their team move into the seniors but we still had Abbie Robins and Louisa Tobin riding for the club as individuals.
Abbie and Tonto have improved a lot since I last saw them and if Tonto hadn’t decided to be a giraffe in the trot would have been placed much higher in their first test. They still got 67% for 4th place in P2. Tonto went better in his 2nd test for 64% (tougher judge) and came 2nd.
Louisa and Hannah also went better in their second test (N30) for 65% and 2nd (which apparently is usual for Hannah) but they still came 7th in their N27 with 61%. Hannah isn’t easy but Louisa did a good job getting some good work from her.
Hopefully next year we may be able to get some more juniors interested so that we can send some teams again. There’s always a good atmosphere and everyone is really friendly so come on kids join WGRC
