Scarborough Team: Amy Osborne, Rowan Haywood, Sarah Beal and Sammy Wade
We made the journey down from Scarborough to compete in the novice winter showjumping championships. With two young novice horses in the team and two slightly more experienced horses we set off with nervous excitement/anticipation. We were delighted all team members completed, Amy and Sarah jumped lovely clears in the first round and were both unlucky to have a pole down in the second round. Rowan jumped two lovely rounds just to pick up two fences during the rounds. Sammi was our very reliable reserve in member standing in for our qualifying team mate Zoe Jenkins who was enjoying herself in Aus.
It was lovely to see both Rowans and Sarahs young horses grow in confidence and jump so well especially in the second rounds. We finished in 11th place….0.7 of a second between us and 10th…
On a personal note it is really good that the Riding Club and KBIS sponsors give us the opportunity to compete at such lovely venues so we can all gain valuable experience.
The whole team and our brilliant supporters thoroughly enjoyed the couple of days away and some sound friendships were made along the way.
