What a fantastic day we had at the RDA Mid West Show Jumping Regional Competition at Wilton RDA Centre on Tuesday.
Five out of our six riders have qualified for the National Show Jumping Championships and we are very proud of all of them, including Lauren who was just unlucky on the day. We are also delighted with all our horses who behaved perfectly, throughout the long journey and at Wilton. It was the first time we had taken Ruby or Cricket to an outside RDA competition too.
We would really like more coaches to get involved for next year as there is nothing so satisfying as seeing our riders achieving good results. Here is an email we received from a parent of our rider, Paige:
“I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone involved in the Show Jumping Regionals yesterday. Paige had a fabulous time and we both thoroughly enjoyed the day.
I didn’t get a chance to thank everyone before they left for home and wanted to say how much Paige and I really appreciated all their hard work! We had a fantastic day and Bertie was on top form! We look forward to doing it all again at Nationals!”
Click here for the results, kindly set out by Maureen. A final HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to all our riders and an even BIGGER THANK YOU to all the volunteers who helped with the day.
Incidentally, we still really need more help for next Thursday at Urchinwood where we have seventeen riders and six horses to look after and support. Please let us know asap if you can join in another special day for our riders and the Centre.
