VVRC success at Winter Qualifiers

BRC Arena Eventing Qualifier at Radford’s Equestrian. 27th October 2018
We entered a team for the 90cm Area Eventing competition at Radford’s. The team consisted of Rachel Woolley, Rebecca Furniss, Meg Higginson and Ali Harper. A few of us had not competed in a competition like this before or for a long time at this height and Becky and Ali were lucky enough to get some practice in the week before with Sarah Warner.
The course consisted of eight show jumps followed by eight XC jumps. The final “joker” fence was a show jump set at 10cm higher than all the other jumps. The course designers had done a great job designing a course that was very rideable which provided some interesting choices about which line to take and this did prove that those who were brave enough to ride the tighter lines made the optimum time.
As we all know, Radford’s is a great venue for parking and spectating and our times allowed us to walk the course together and to cheer our team mates on. We all got round and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Our team came 4th and Rachel Woolley came individual 3rd.
A big thank you to our helpers, without whom these BRC competitions can’t run.
