Area Horse Trial Qualifier at Somerford Park

This competition was originally planned to be at Llanymynech in June, but the terrible wet weather at the start of June meant that it could not run and had to be rearranged. This was a shame, as some of our members, who had originally entered, were unable to make the new date, but it was great that Meg and Helen were able to step in.

Area 20 joined Area 3 at Somerford Park in July. The 90 team, made up of Helen Hathaway, Janet Brereton and Shelly Colohan came 5th. 

Myfi Powell had a fantastic double clear and Meg Higginson was thrilled to complete the 80cm as an individual.

Everyone enjoyed the day and the opportunity to compete at that venue. We would also like to thank our helpers, Tara Taylor and Sarah Hanmer who are not club members, but kindly helped for half a day each and thank you to Gill Powell for being chef d’equipe on the day.
Well done everyone

Winter Novice Dressage 2018

On Saturday November 3rd 2018, five VVRC members set out for Somerford Park to take part in the area winter novice dressage competition.
The competition was held on the lovely outdoor arenas with plenty of warm up space. I think most of the horses were eyeing up the cross-country fences and would have enjoyed doing that after their tests!

The team of Kat Morgan, Janet Warner, Meg Higginson and Sally Evans, plus Ruth Hurley as individual, all did good tests. Janet did amazingly well to come 3rd in her arena but sadly the team were out of the rosettes with stiff competition from around the area. Many thanks to those who stewarded (Kat and Sally) especially as it was quite a cold day.
