Area 8 Teams at Hickstead

(July 22, 2012)

Area 8 was very well represented at the Royal International Horse Show at Hickstead in the BRC Team of Three competition. The competition is open to senior members of an affiliated Riding Club, although one junior may be included.

The team is made up of three horses and riders - one Novice 85cm; one Intermediate 95cm and one Open 105cm combination. The competition is one round each against the clock with all scores to count. The team with the least number of combined faults and the fastest combined time wins.

The day started very early with 105 teams to get through on the all-weather surface. The sun shone, the ground had dried up in the lorry park and trade stands were doing well.

Billericay came a magnificent 4th with 4 faults and Ingatestone and Blackmore 10th again with 4 faults but a slightly slower time. Royal Wood were unlucky to not be placed as they had 2 very fast clear rounds but the open rider had too many faults.  Well done to everyone for making such an exciting day.
