Area Show Jumping

Well done to all that competed at the Area Show Jumping on Saturday.  Thank you for representing your Branch so well.

The Class 1 team (pictured) did a superb job and came first, qualifying for the Regionals. They were Scarlett Owen, Faye Jones, Twm Cernyw and Eben Davies, with Twm winning overall. Georgia Vaarkamp and Archie Lynch qualified as individuals, so Flint & Denbigh will be well represented at the Regionals.

The Class 2 team of Emily Vaarkamp, Orlagh Toner, Sophie Cocking and Leah Jones all had good first rounds but things didn’t go their way in the second so unfortunately didn’t qualify this year.

In Class 3 Sali Wyn-Wheway and Lily Ann Pardoe both qualified for the PC Champs as individuals by coming 3rd and 4th. Unfortunately the other team members Jac Cernyw and Millie Dalton didn’t qualify this time.

After 3 years of dominating the Open Area competition we didn’t even have a Branch Team this year, but Sophie Toogood and Heidi O’Brien took part in the winning mixed team and also qualified as individuals with a 1st and 2nd. 

Well done once again to all that took part and to the parents who get you there!!  Thank you also to Aloma and Bethan for your help, it seems I need to get Facebook Savvy!!
