ECRC Christmas Show Jumping Report – 20th December 2020

First of all please can I say a HUGE THANK YOU to all the competitors and helpers who came out yesterday.
What an amazing day, it ran so well with the stewards and riders all working together. What superb judges we had, they gave time for riders who had problems, the balance of correct rules and encouragement was fantastic, offering advice where needed. Thank you Steve and Jane.

With over 100 entries we always knew it would be a busy day, we allowed time for people to course walk and warm up and everyone was superb with arriving and competing, all with the most cheerful smiles. Some beautifully decorated horses and riders, one I heard say Christmas has thrown up on her…you know who you are lol .

The 60cm and 70cm were well attended with Tiffany Orme winning both, on 2 different horses, well done Tiff, fastest time over that course all day, Closely followed by Tiggie Witton with the lovely Jerry 2nd in both classes.
Our biggest class of over 30 rider was hotly contested, the judges decided to split into horses and ponies with only 2 ponies double clear and 5 horses.
Julia Bassett popped out for her annual Xmas Jumping event, rode a smooth considered round to win the 85cm with 5 seconds to spare. The last two classes were hotly contested with Evie Baker and Jasper taking
some superb turns to win both classes…with exactly the same time on the clock, so closely followed by Pheobe on Martha 2nd in both classes, both horses and riders were part of the winning Intermediate SJ team that won
their class at the qualifier last week. Well Done girls.

Full results will be posted on the Facebook page and ECRC website.
It has been a tough year for riders and organisers in 2020, so many events cancelled, often after hours of organising, so we were delighted to be able to run. We really hope to see you all at our Dressage on 17th January and Easter SJ on 7th March. Many of you competing at our show were not members, we would welcome you to join. £25 for a year from January to January, what a lovely present to give to someone, and members don’t forget to renew, lots to look forward to in 2021. Visit many shows and clinics are already planned in the new year.
