On August the 15th Stag Lodge Stables took part in the pony club championships, senior instructor Melanie took four riders and two horses up to Cholmondeley Castle, Cheshire. On the day the riders were competing in both Show Jumping and dressage. For most of the team it was their first experience at a show.
The riders had to learn and perform a dressage test each and then ride a show jumping course. The riders were judged on how well they rode and the control and harmony they had with their horse. Both horses and riders made us very proud by coming 2nd in showing out of 15 teams and 8th for the combined dressage and show jumping. Also in the individual Molly came 5th and Jemima Sant came 2nd. Princess and Daisy were also stars and received lovely comments from the judges.
Stay posted because in the new year Melanie will be picking her team for 2015 and training will begin.
