Well what a weekend – not only did we have the Burghley Horse Trials on our doorstep, but we had some fab competitors who went along to the BRC National Champs in Lincoln – and what a day they had.
Our senior team (Claire Ludeks, Debbie Robinson, Shayni Caffell and Jo Meikle) only went and clinched second place in the 80cm show-jumping, with Claire also being placed 2nd individually.
Nikki Webb who had won the Area qualifier with the only double clear round in the 90cm class, achieved a pretty decent score of 4 faults over a tough and big course.
Claire Marcus and Debbie Robinson were also dancing in the pairs dressage – and managed a creditable 12th place.
How proud are we.
Well done girls
How delighted are we that our dressage pair Debbie Robinson and Claire Marcus, were placed 1st in the Area 7 Dressage Qualifier competition on Sat 15th July at Earith. They are now off to the Lincoln Championships in September and flying the WARC flag.
Well done ladies and many congratulations from us all
New regulations come into force on January 1st 2016 regarding riding hat standards for anyone competing in BRC competitions. Anyone wishing to compete as an individual or team member representing WARC at Area qualifiers and national championships, will need to ensure their hat meets this new standard. For club activities and competitions we strongly recommend you check your hat and replace if necessary.
