WOW what a fantastic result! One of our members, Sam Shaw-Davies, was placed 7th at the Festival of the Horse Championships at Aston Le Walls last weekend. I’m sure you’ll all agree with me that she and Mollie deserve a great big WELL DONE!
They qualified at area on March 21st at Radfords, coming 3rd in their arena with a 32 dressage and clear show jumping. They weren’t expecting to qualify but received a letter 3 weeks ago inviting them to the championships at Aston le Walls.
This was part of the Festival of The Horse which also incorporates the Express Eventing and the championships ran over Saturday and Sunday. They competed on the Sunday in the drizzle, after a 5:30am start but it was all worth it as Molly did a very sweet test and was scored with a 34 (the highest score being 27, so not much of a gap!) and then went on to do an amazing show jumping round, not bad for a 15hh 17yo ex racehorse!
Congratulations to them both!
