The exeat weekend was a busy one for Knighton House riding –
On Saturday and Sunday Kitty and Darcie competed at the David Broome Event Centre in Wales in the British Showjumping Just for Schools league and National Championships. Darcie and her pony Beauty jumped an impressive 4 double clears in her 80 and 90 classes and jumped an enormous 1m-1.10m course just rolling 2 poles. This meant Darcie finished strong individually in classes of over 40 much older boys and girls.
Results for Darcie are as follows.
90cm National Championship Final -3rd
1m – 7th
Darcie is also placed 9th on the league board, with her points accumulator.
Kitty and Storm jumped 4 amazing classes, jumping her first British Showjumping (BS) courses at an away show up against the pros. Results for Kitty are as follows:
60cm league class double clear -4th
80cm league double clear
60cm league double clear -1st
80cm National championship Final double clear
An amazing start to British Showjumping – Well done Kitty!!
Congratulations must also go to Daisy who qualified for this event, but sadly after entering and planning the trip, her horse went lame.
While the others girls stayed locally at Moreton Equestrian Centre. Tara and Duncan won the JWS (Jumping with style) 70cm class and was placed 2nd in the 80cm, such great results. JWS is looking at Tara’s position and how she manages the horses balance through her round.
But the rosettes didn’t stop there!!
Brooke took her new horse, Bart, to their first competition (at Moreton) and was placed 2nd and 4th in her classes. Josie with Miss Bella had an unfortunate run out missing out on placing. Some of the other riders had a showjump training session at Moreton ready for the GR Championship, which due to the light of events has sadly been cancelled for the second time.
Lots of time to now work on the basics, so when all centres are open again, we can carry on with competing.
