Well done to all the other members that competed.

The Novice team were 5th. Ellie Wilson 5th Ind. Emily Hare, Lilly-Ann Pardoe and Seren Parry. It was also nice to see some of our past members compete in the riding club sections.

I would like to thank Louise for organising all the training for the members.

The event was organised by Geoff Bell DC of The East Cheshire and his very hard working band of volunteers.

The course at Somerford was magnificent and the competition ran very smoothly. A great deal of hard work is put in to organising such an event and we are very grateful to Geoff & The East Cheshire Branch…Bethan DC
