Congratulations to the junior team of Katie Clyne, Evie Kerry and Tillie Woods who had a great weekend at Aston Le Walls for the Junior 80cm Arena Eventing Championships. The team finished 11th and unfortunately just outside of the rosettes due to some fast clear rounds that were slightly over the optimum time! Katie Clyne finished with just 6 time faults to finish 11th individually and sadly just outside of the placings.
Arena Eventing is a new championship for 2019 and combines a course of show jumps with cross country fences at heights of 70cm - 110 cm for junior and senior riding club members. The last fence of the course consists of a joker fence that is set 10cm higher than the rest of the course. If you are interested in taking part next year look out for the qualifier in the late Autumn #SRC
