Novice SJ - 19th November 2023
Area 14 Novice SJ qualifier – Topthorn EC – 19th Nov 2023
Our club hosted the qualifier at Topthorn this year for the first time after we lost our much missed venue Wix EQ centre.
It was always going to be a busy day with over 100 rounds of showjumping to get through and a limited amount of parking spaces !! The challenge was on 🙂
We started with the 70 warm up class which saw Zara Thain and her home produced Connemara ‘Danny’ come 5th at his first show/time out!
Addie Akers was placed 8th and Ella Smith 12th – Well done
Next up was the 70 team event which resulted in 9 teams competing and resulted in the High Fen Green team be placed 3rd on a score of 4 faults and 113.47 time.
Congrats to Jo Dedross, Jackie Barrie, Ella Smith and Sarah Field with Jo gaining a double clear and clear in the jump off to take a 7th place individually just missing out on a rosette.
The High Fen Blue team were placed 7Th overall with a finishing score of 8 faults and a time of 123.33 – Well done to Addie Akers, Becky West, Zara Thain and Lizzie Horne. Lizzie gaining a 6th place individually on her lovely mare ‘Kate’
We didn’t have any members jumping in the 80 warm up class so the next class was the 80 team event which saw 6 qualifier teams and 1 Area team come forward.
The team finished a credible 4th place with 27 faults in a 136.07 time with Sandra Bond finishing on a double clear and clear jump off in 41.23.
The course builder David did a great job of building a challenging yet inviting course with the space he had available but did catch a few out !
Thank you to all the volunteers and helpers who came and assisted throughout the day, without you we would be unable to run these events 😊 so a big ‘Thank you’ from us all.
Look forward to seeing some of you at the Dressage qualifier!
