On the day we needed to provide quite a few helpers - without our helpers we literally could not compete, we would get disqualified! So a huge thank you to Beth Davidson, Tracey Toombs, Nikki Morgan, Nikki's Sister, Helen Nicholls, Kate Bouchier, Sarah Richards, Emelya King, Poppy Read and Lauren Fox! A mixture of fence judging, car park stewarding, collecting ring steward - safe to say we had most bases covered!

So, how did we do?

Well firstly I'd like to really highlight the friendship, sportsmanship and team spirit showed by Aspley Guise in these qualifiers. Beforehand, team members were discussing what times they were arriving so that they could plan to walk to course together, and on the day it was wonderful to see everyone support each other, staying to watch other team members compete, congratulating each other, supporting each other - and our helpers were fantastic cheerleaders too! This is the kind of environment and attitudes we are trying to foster in our club!

Results wise it was a fantastic day for Aspley Guise & District Riding Club. Imi Bradbury kicked off the day coming 1st in her 90cm Junior class, (official confirmation pending) we're delighted to be sending her off to the National Championships in Spring 2020!

We had a 5th from Hannah Mears in the 100cm Senior class, followed by 15th from Carlene Goff in the same class.

Our teams did well too, with our 90cm Seniors placing 1st (BRC confirming pending, they're off to nationals), Katy placing 15th individually, and our 80cm Seniors placing 5th!!

I'd like to say a huge well done to all of our competitors - I think it's safe to say that, from a team spirit and results side, you're really putting Aspley Guise & District Riding Club on the map!

Next up?

20th October, Arena Eventing at Keysoe, classes from 70cm-100cm, Juniors and Seniors

If you're interested in joining one of the teams for future events, please contact us on info@aspleyguiseridingclub.com

We're always happy to see our teams grow, Senior or Junior! And we'd really love to hear from some more Juniors who would be interested in representing our club.
