BRC Summer National Showjumping Qualifiers – Tendering- 24th May 2015

facebook-20150524-205435Well done to all the BDRC members competing at the Summer National Showjumping qualifiers today!

Our senior novice team finished a creditable 4th place with clears from Lauren Goode and Julie Haywood and just 4 faults for Janet Hyde.

Rosie Bates was riding her exciting new mare Inca, who is fairly new to this showjumping game. She had an unlucky 2 poles in round 1 and one or two more in round 2! But she learnt from the experience and looks to be a very brave event horse in the making!

Lauren’s horse Arnie performed in his usual polished style to achieve double clears and Julies XC partner Lola looked to be enjoying herself and having just one pole down over the two rounds!

Janet’s Alfie, our star performer at the Winter Championships at Hartpury, had a good look at fence 6, but jumped all other fences without faults!

A fantastic day for all, well done to our competitors and supporters for pole picking today!

We look forward to seeing you all at the Dressage show at Crays Hill on the 7th June!

Novice Winter Showjumping Championships – 4th April 2015 – Hartpury College

facebook-20150524-210904Back from the KBIS 2015 winter showjumping championships with team Billericay at Hartpury, with Hayley Goode, Lauren Goode, jan Goode, Rosie Bates, Janet Hyde and Sophie Hyde.

With a team of just three, the odds were against us, but all our riders went clear in the first round & we went through on zero, over a technical course, fabulous!!! In joint 1st!!!

The course went up for round 2 and Rosie and Dot had an unlucky 2 poles. Janet pulled off a brilliant foot perfect double clear with Alfie on his first stay away show. It was not to be for Arnie and Hayley, who didn’t like the look of the scary Zebras.

Still a great performance from all Billericay riders; Well done to everyone, we had a great time at Hartpury, with great company!! roll on the next one!
