Winter League Show Jumping – Results

Well done to everyone who competed at East Cheshire Winter League competition at Somerford on Sunday. Well done to Eben Davies who was placed 1st in the Spring Festival 90cm class which means he’s qualified to the next round. Also well done to Eben and Iri Davies who were part of a mixed team in class 4 and were placed 2nd. Joshua was placed 5th individually in class 1a, he was one of the only 8 riders out of 32 riders that rode a clear round. There was some fantastic riding by our members but unfortunate poles meant no team placings.

Next Winter League competition will be November 14th at Southview.

A few places remain on this clinic if any Flint & Denbigh members would like to attend. Contact Michelle Turner to book (m.turner105@btinternet.com).
