Team News 

Blenheim Eventers Challenge - A team of Cheryl Beer, James Shaw, Alaya Arden and Poppy Burner travelled to Blenheim Horse Trials on Thursday 19th September 2019 to contest the 100cm Eventers Challenge. They had a fantastic time and finished a very credible 7th place! Congratulations!

Winter Novice Dressage Qualifier - Two teams went to the Area 12 Novice Dressage on the 6th October at KSEC. Both teams went to contest the Area 12 Championships rather than the National Qualifiers, and this year it was run as two distinct competitions with the Areas being team only.

A few people rode in the warm up tests, with Caroline Brimblecombe winning N24 and Sarah Hitchings in 3rd.

Team SOVRC Spice was placed 5th out of 17 teams with individuals Samantha Shaw riding P7, Nicola Morrison and Lilli placed 4th in P12, Millie Pring placed 5th in N28 and Sarah Hitchings placed 5th in N30.

Team SOVRC Sugar was out of the placings but good efforts from some first timers, both scoring over 65%, Sophie Channon riding P7 and Alexia Hollingsworth riding P12, along with Caroline Brimblecombe placed 6th in N28 and Nicola Bywood on Tixy riding N30.

The scores were all very tight and people were only missing out on placings by a few marks, showing the high standards that are always the competition within Area 12. It was a long day with three arenas running, so thank you to those who stayed on to support others and to Lou and Millie (and Josh) who stayed until the final team results were released.
