Area 19 BRC Riding Club Horse Trials Qualifier 13th June 2021 – Junior Report

We sent 2 Junior teams and 1 Junior who made up a mixed 1m team to the Area 19 BRC Horse Trials Qualifier on 130621.

What a scorcher, Beautiful blue skies and not a cloud in sight was the beautiful setting for the course at St Leonards. Andy and the team did a great job of the course, which incorporated some new fences, that quite frankly looked huge to me.

Our 80cm team of Florence Scard-Morgan, Erin Voyzey, Evie Baker and Emilia Poet worked hard and had some fantastic rounds with Florence Ind 2nd, Emilia 6th and Evie 8th. Team came 1st and provisionally qualified for the Championships in August at Swalcliffe.

Our 90cm team of Megan Busby, Beth Stephens, Tegan Holdaway and Issy Thomas, was a fairly inexperienced team at this level, all still eligible for the 80cm, they really took this one and had a blast. Some great dressage scores, and clear round was not quite enough to win the class and they were a credible 2nd to Cornwall Trec this time. With Individual placing for Issy 6th, Tegan 8th and Megan 9th.

Phoebe Frost joined the mixed 100 team made up of Seniors, Hattie Congdon, Sarah Shaw and Amy Bennalick.  She had a great day finishing on her dressage score for an Individual 6th place. The team managed a fantastic 1st place, they are also provisionally invited to the Champs in August.
