Thursday 4th Aug dressage practice at Plas Dolben which was in preparation for the F&D Combined Training Competition next week. All members listened to Debbie Miller's tips on how to improve their test riding, they then came out and rode lovely second tests, showing clear improvement even though the heavens opened and they all got very soggy. A big thank you to Iona, Gareth and Debbie for giving the members the opportunity to practice and perfect their dressage performance.
Saturday 4th June Beginners One Day Event at Smallwood which was organised by Cheshire Hunt North Branch of the Pony Club. Seven F&D PC members successfully took part in this ODE - Jac Cernyw, Zahra Bennett, Sali Wyn Wheway, Orlagh Toner, Steph Parsley, Twm Cernyw and Scarlett Owen. All members were immaculately turned out and rode exceptionally well in each of the three phases, and were rewarded by lots of individual placings. Well done to everyone who took part, you were a credit to your Branch.
Eight very keen, happy, honed athletes represented Flint and Denbigh Hunt Branch today (April 17th) at the Triathlon in Denbigh. As you can see from the pictures, they returned home covered in rosettes and medals. A team of 4 - Neisha Roberts, Leah lamb, Imogen Kissane and Scarlett Owen came 2nd. Neisha did particularly well individually by winning the Mini Girls by about 500 points and getting the top swim and run medals. Her run time was an amazing 3 min 44 secs for 1000m. Scarlett Owen shot very well. The other three competitors were placed in their classes - Harriett and Margaret Goodall and Orla Kissane. Casper Kissane was their mascot
