10th March 2019 - 80cm Arena Eventing Final at Aston LeWalls
A huge congratulations to our amazing Arena Eventing Team, Tina, Louise, Megan and Tanya for placing 10th at the Horse Quest Arena Eventing Championship at Aston LeWalls. We are extremely proud of all of our riders, firstly for winning the qualifier at Pyecombe and then for riding so well at Aston LeWalls placing in the final championship.
Our team were super speedy with Tina, Tanya and Louise riding faster than the optimum time and both Megan and Tina clearing the large joker fence perfectly at the end of their rounds. It is very impressive how well our team did with two 14.1hh ponies, and the majority of our horses being veterans! It was an honour to watch our team ride so beautifully and fast!
10 of our riding club members went up to Aston for the whole weekend, taking over a local B&B and stable in preparation for the finals to drive, manage, groom, photograph, volunteer at the show and cheer on our team. It was a fun (wet, cold and muddy) weekend full of lots of laughter and support. Thank you so much to Sam, Julie, Ro, Christopher, Judith and Cathy for joining us all and making it even more fun and special having such great support and company.Thank you to Chris for capturing wonderful photographs and a big thank you to Cathy for staying on later to volunteer at the competition so our team were allowed to compete. A massive well done WSRC team, we are all very proud of you!
2nd March 2019 - Intermediate Show Jumping Qualifier at BCA
We had a wonderful day out with our very talented 1m WSRC intermediate Show Jumping Team. Our team rode beautifully finishing the day in 2nd place. A huge congratulations to Louise for placing individually in 2nd place and qualifying for finals, and to Lynn placing 4th and Giselle for placing 5th and to Lauren for coming out and competing Drum for the first time in ages and jumping him over huge fences beautifully. Thank you to all of you for representing our club and to Christopher for giving up his Saturday to photograph our team and to Cathy, Britta and everyone’s friends and family for supporting. Big thanks to Ava and BeBe who did a fantastic job as our team volunteers. We really appreciate the time everyone gives up to help WSRC. As always lots of smiles from the WSRC team! Good work team we are very proud of you all!
Novice Winter 80-85cm Show Jumping Qualifier at Sands Farm - Sunday 10th February 2019A massive well done to our WSRC team and individual show jumpers. We had one team and two individuals entered for this, with the 1st round a course of fences at 80cm and then a 2nd round at 85cms. The format was the usual team of 4 with 3 scores to count. Our team did really well to finish in 5th place with beautiful purple rosettes to match our WSRC colours! In the first round Tina and Tanya flew around the course and unfortunately just caught a pole each. Sam had a steady clear, followed by a neat and tidy clear from Kimberly. The second round was a bit more problematic for our intrepid jumpers. It was a very testing course with the jumps being wide spreads and up to full height. Tina knocked one pole, Tanya was sadly eliminated when her pony decided he’d had enough of jumping things bigger than him! Sam did a super clear and Kimberly just caught the very last fence. This gave the team a finishing score of 12 and put them 5th overall.
We had Charlotte represent WSRC as a senior individual and Imogen as a junior individual. Charlotte was the first of our two individual riders but it was not her day and she was unfortunate to be eliminated. Our junior rider Imogen rode a lovely first round with one unfortunate pole knocked. Imogen’s second round was also problematic when her pony decided that green just wasn’t his favourite colour resulting in elimination.
There was a wonderful supportive team spirit between our riders and supporters and as always all of our riders ended the day with lots of smiles. Thank you to our six riders for representing WSRC, being part of team does make show jumping more fun as it gives you someone to support between your rounds and someone to cheer you on when it’s your turn. Our members wore black arm bands whilst competing in loving memory and respect for our membership secretary Rebecca Attridge.
Many thanks to Jenny for being our wonderful team manger, Julie, Judith and all of the WSRC friends and family for supporting our club on the day. A huge thank you to our wonderful club photographer Chris who took time to support s in the cold and take beautiful photographs for us all to enjoy.

We enjoyed mince pies, mulled wine, hot drinks and savory snacks from Cathy's camper van along with Christmas music and a grotto full of fairy lights created by Chris! Thank you to everyone who joined us and it was made very special to see lots of horses and dogs dressed in tinsel with our members too. We look forward to seeing you all in the New Year!
