We had a fabulous ride on Bank Holiday Monday on the Pentillie Estate. The weather stayed dry and we had 165 riders who took part in the ride. The course was nearly all off road with a great variety of tracks including some lovely woodland with superb bluebells and a lovely gallop through open fields at the end with a stunning view of the Tamar.
A big thank you to everyone who helped make this a well organised and successful event. Special mention to Trevor Ford & Sarah Parkhouse who covered parking & did an amazing job. Anouska Honig & Gill Moore for stewarding at the second woods. Wendy Graves at the start & Fiona Stephens at the finish. Katherine Moore for stewarding despite having to rush off to work in the afternoon. Vanessa Hunt Pat Hatch & Gill Ford all worked their magic at the entries.
We had another great camp at Pontispool complete, new lodges, fantastic food, fabulous instruction from Andrew Lovell, Emily Farleigh-Moran and Andrew Robbins, mad amazing campers and lots of awesome photos from Pat Hatch and Graham not forgetting sunny weather (will ignore the bit)
Karen Franklin had a fabulous couple of days away representing East Cornwall Riding Club at the BRC Horsequest Arena Eventing Championships. Knightsbridge Joe was his usual amazing self. Clear show jumping & clear cross country but an unfortunate miss at the joker meant no placing.
We sent 14 Juniors riders to the event on Sunday at Colraine riding 70cm, 80cm and 90cm. The 70cm team was a mixed team who finished Team 3rd. The 2 Junior 80cm Teams rode really good rounds with one team finishing 1st and provisionally qualifying for Champs in May and the other team 4th. Millie riding a fantastic round to win the class. Our 90cm team was not placed but Emilia finished a fantastic 3rd Individually.
Well Done to all riders. Erin V. Esme R. Emma W. Rosie B. Megan B. Millie F. Daisy S. Fleur J. Josie J. Emily R. Ava O. Isobel T. Tamsyn M. Emilia P.
