We had a fantastic turnout for the Area 19 Junior qualifier on Sunday at Duchy. 12 members stepped forward to compete at the event with some riding both Dressage and Show Jumping.
We set off to a great start with Emma and Megan in the 70cm class. With just 3 double clears in the class Megan took away 2nd place and Emma 5th, a brilliant start to the day.
Then followed the 80cm class, always hotly contested between the clubs. Rosie Busby, Tegan Holdaway, Fleur and Josie Jackson stormed home with a team score of 0 and a faster accumulative score than the runners up to take Team 1st with Rosie Ind 1st, Tegan 3rd and Josie 5th.
The 90cm followed with Issy riding 2 horses in 2 teams, Rosie and Tegan making up the numbers to ensure both teams started with 4 riders and Beth Stephens, Tamsyn Morris, Florence Scard-Morgan and Emilia Poet. Issy with Sammy took the only double clear in the class to finish 1st with the team of Rosie (7th), Tamsyn(6th) and Emilia (13th) they just pipped Cornwall trec to the win, equal faults, but just that bit faster. Team of Issy, Tegan(9th), Beth(8th) and
Florence finished 3rd. Fantastic results for both teams.
The 80cm team have provisionally qualified for Arena UK in Grantham in March and the Intermediate Team for Champs in May at Bury Farm.
