Alton School Show Jumping – May 2018

It was an early start with everyone arriving at the yard at 7 to feed, muck out and prepare ponies, at 7.45 with 8 horses and ponies on board we hit the road. We had a packed schedule starting at 9.25 going right through until 4 so it was all hands on decks to keep ponies and riders cool, fed and hydrated. All riders and ponies represented us beautifully. Now for the results, bear with me as i’m very pleased to say there’s quite a few.

Class one:
Paige and Cuso, Katie and Caramac, Lizzy and Rocky and Paige and Rio.
Team 1st and Individual 6th for Katie and Caramc.

Class two:
Paige and Rio, Orla and Rolo and Lizzy and Rocky. Finished on an unlucky 4 faults, but super riding and Rolo’s first time out with us competeing.
Paige and Cuso, Lottie and Topper, Orla and Bobby and Katie and Caramac.
Team 2nd and individual 4th for Paige and Cuso and 5th for Katie and Caramac out over 60 competitors.

Class three:
Paige and Cuso, Katie and Caramac, Lottie and Topper and Orla and Rolo.

Paige and Rio, Orla and Bobby and Katie and Rocky.
Team 3rd.

Meanwhile over in ring 2 Sienna and Nemo had joined forces with Benjy Bethany and Erin to make another G.E.C team and were jumping out of their skins.

In their 3 classes they placed:
Team 1st, Team 2nd, Team 2nd and an amazing individual 2nd for Sienna and Nemo in their first competition together.

To say it was a successful day would be an understatement. Thank you to Kim and Rachel for getting us all there. Thank you Jill and Sara for allowing us to take Bobby. Thank you Dylan for coming and helping with holding horses and generally being everyone’s gopher for the day.

Thank you to Debbie and staff back at the yard for continuing with a normal day but with a lot less horses and ponies. And a huge thank you to Alton school for another brilliantly run and organised show.

Well done everyone you have done us proud again.
