Dressage update

The second Winter League Dressage competition was held at Higher Farm by Cheshire Hunt South and Waen Y Llyn branches. We had 3 members representing Flint & Denbigh. Amber Beaumont came 3rd in the walk trot test, Summer Bellis won the intermediate and Amber Bellis won the open. The team came 2nd. Well done for the fab results and representing the branch.

The next Winter League dressage will be on 11th November hosted by our branch at Northop Equestrian so hopefully we can get more members supporting.

Dressage lessons and test riding practice during half term on 30th October, limited spaces available. Book ASAP with Rebecca Miller dressage@fndponyclub.org.uk

Intro to Dressage

One of the groups who took part in the Intro to Dressage morning. It was a good morning for all, and the weather was great too. Thank you for attending. 


Tetrathlon Ellesmere Port/Kelsall Hill – 22 October – Results

Flint & Denbigh Branch were out in force at the weekend competing at the tetrathlon.  It was the Triathlon phases on the Saturday and the riding on the Sunday. The younger classes were going to be doing Arena eventing and the older ones going XC, but because of all the heavy rain, all classes did the arena eventing on a surface. This turned out to be quite testing for the younger ones especially as many of them had not done this before.

However, our results were amazing.  There were 170 competitors altogether and we had 4 young teams of 4 doing the Tet and one team of 3 doing the Triathlon.

Team placings were:

  • Flint team were 3rd (Casper and Orla Kissane, Catrin Morgan, Zoe James) out of 24 teams! Brilliant.
  • Our other teams (Castle, Clwyd and Denbigh) were very young members and came 18th, 19th and 22nd. One of these teams had 4 members all aged 5! Winners for the future.

Notable individual achievements were:

  • Casper went clear, had an amazing run of 3:25 and won the Mini Boys class
  • Orla went clear and was 2nd Junior Girl with the top girl run of the whole competition
  • Catrin Morgan came 2nd in the Tadpole class with an unbelievable 960 shoot
  • Zoe James was 9th in the same class with a speedy 3:56 run
  • Halle Rosser came 3rd in her class
  • Harri Morgan came 5th in his class
  • Megan went clear but twin sister Alys did a fence bigger than she should have done!
  • The lower classes were lead rein and they were very eventful!

WELL DONE Flint & Denbigh and Good Luck for the Triathlon in Mold Oct 29th.
