Area Eventing 2013 - Date posted 16/07/2013

The Area Eventing competition in the heat at Milton Keynes passed off very sucessfully yesterday. Firstly, we must thank Sarah O'Hara, Jan and Caroline Potiphar for fence judging for us all day. It is a requirement of our entry that we supply fence judges, so we are very grateful to them especially as there are no Potiphar's left in the Pony Club and Sarah does it as a great friend to me, I am not sure why I deserve that but do appreciate being able to enter teams due to this generous committment by others.

The Open Team of Becky Woolven, Emma and Chloe Jackson and Fred O'Donald were second and qualified once again for the National Championships at Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire on Monday 19th August. Becky won her section. Unfortunately, Hannah had a fall cross country and is Ok other than a black eye and a hopefully only very bruised arm which will be x rayed again next week to ensure that it is not broken. We wish you a speedy recovery.

The Intermediate Team came 10th. Honor Murison was 2nd in her section and will go to the Championships on Sunday 18th August. Gaby was 6th in that section. Annabelle Turner had a fabulous result with a double clear but was unfortunately in a very strong section and did not get a rosette. Emily Martin and Francesca Quesnel also put in good performances.

Stop Press: The Novice Team were in fact 6th not 7th. Once out of the heat of the day - the scorers (dont know which branch they came from!) found that a combined team had been placed and so rosettes are on their way to Mollie Coker Harris, Izzy Tasker, Kate Wallace and Zoe Burroughs. Well done all four of you. Millie Simons did fantastically well with a double clear to come 6th in her section and Kate Wallace also did a wonderful double clear to be 3rd in her section. Zoe and Danny were = third but were placed 4 as the other person was on the optium time for cross country.

To clarify - combined teams are made up by the organisers of individuals as the num
