Lilac team take all the prizes! - Date posted 03/07/2013

The Proud DC is delighted to report as follows:
Today 6 teams set off early to the VAH PC Team jumping. for some if was their first time representing the branch in a team and there were sucesses across the board. The Ruby Intro Team finished on a score of 4 faults were Ollie Heard, Lily Arnold, Tash Turner and Phoebe Anderson were 5th with a double clear for Tash and Harvey.
The Fuchsia Intro Team - Charlie Fry, Charlotte Moore, Flo Carter and Laura Pope were 8th finishing with a score of 8 and Flo got a double clear.
In the Novice Ring the under 12 team, only one of 3 teams, did very well having moved up from the intro ring last year. Unfortunately, Bobbie and Maddie were eliminated in the first round due to a very scary filler but after warming up with Jane for the next round rode like demons and produced clear rounds. Phoebe Hendry did a double clear and Louis just had 4 faults but Dell did give some of the fences another 3 ft!
The Cerise team finished on 12 faults and came 7th, Anna Rigsby, Emily Hearne, Millie Simons and Kate Wallace doing a double clear.

In the Open ring, we also had two teams after the first round the Rose Team Zoe Burroughs, Mollie Coker Harris, Harvey Hendry and Susie Everett were on zero and so were the Lilac Team - Izzy Tasker, Honor Murison, Annabelle Turner and Hannah Martin. At Lunch time the Lilac team were awarded first prize for tack and turn out, sometimes the kiss of death! but in the afternoon the Rose Team had 8 faults a piece but the Lilac team were tied on 4 faults with 4 other teams for first place, so there was a jump off and we were drawn to go first - 3 superb quick clear rounds were impossible to beat and so the trophy was theirs and a second first rosette for the day. Annabelle did two clear rounds and Hannah Martin 3! A really good team effort from you all girls - congratulations and you all did look very smart.
