Mounted Games Competition Results
The mounted games teams had their Area competition on Saturday 4th May followed by a 2-day competition hosted by United Pack in Shrewsbury on Sunday and Monday.
The Senior A team of Twm Cernyw, Katie Davies, Ellie Richardson, Cari Jones and Alex Owen didn’t have a great start and were in fact losing to the B team at the beginning! But they pulled themselves together finishing in 2nd place overall, and qualifying for Zone in Stanford Hall on 21st July.
The Senior B team of Maisie Lester, Katy Jones, Emma Owen and Leia and Ceri Lloyd Williams rode very well finishing in 5th place, and they were the highest placed B team.
The Junior A team of Lleucu Newton, Lena Pierce, Helen Jones, Erin Wood and Abbie Richardson rode well but couldn’t match the speed of the best teams in Area 5. They finished in 4th place. Just one place behind them was the Junior B team of Macsen Newton, Llinos Owen, Harri Lloyd Williams, and two riders from Cheshire Hunt South they had never met before also rode well and finished in 5th place.
Flint & Denbigh also had 4 pairs in the relatively new competition:
- Cari Jones and Leia Lloyd Williams finished in 5th place
- Alex Owen and Katie Davies in 6th
- Katy Jones and Maisie Lester in 7th, and
- Emma Owen and Mali Roberts in 8th place
Once Area was finished most of us went on to Shrewsbury ready to compete for the rest of the weekend, where all teams competed in 3 rounds of heats in which teams were scored and then entered into the A, B or C final and scores reset to zero.
The Senior A team of Ellie Richardson, Alex Owen, Leia Lloyd Williams, Cari Jones and Twm Cernyw had two decent sessions and one not-so-good, and went into the B final. They had an excellent final and finished in 2nd place.
The Senior B team of Mali Roberts, Emma Owen, Ceri Lloyd Williams, Maisie Lester and Katy Jones missed a lot of changeovers and made a few other mistakes in their heats, and went into the C final. They rode well in the final and fixed a lot of their mistakes, and finished in 3rd place behind two very good teams.
The Junior team of Erin Wood, Abbie Richardson, Llinos Owen, Lleucu Newton and Helen Jones had a similar experience, making some mistakes in the heats and went into the B final. They had a pretty good final, not making many mistakes but struggling a bit with the speed. They finished in 3rd place.
Harri Lloyd Williams and Macsen Newton made up the North Hereford Junior B team, riding with 3 more children they’d never met before. They also qualified for the B final and finished in 5th place.
