After a very early start which included a drive through Bristol City Centre at around 8.00 a.m. we arrived at Mendip Plains Equestrian Centre!. Kelly Clack with Charlie and Jamie Ritchie with Snow White Feet were in the first class of the day – the 100. 9 jumping elements in the show jumping arena and 19 cross country fences – all up to height! Snow had thrown a shoe the night before and despite a plea for a local farrier flew round the xc with 3 shoes – no penalties but unfortunately had had 3 down in the show jumping but nevertheless were placed 7th (out of 40 I believe). Sadly Kelly’s mental sat nav let her down on the xc (1 pole down sj) and she missed the water complex! However, that made her even more determined in the 90cm pairs class which she took part in with Sarah James. A really good round gained them 3rd place! Holly (Sandstorm) and Sheenagh Bragg (Autumn Mist) gave their usual polished performances with just one stop on the xc for baby Misty giving them a very credible 4th place. Sarah James and Rhiannon’s Gypsy also stormed round the 90cm individual class and I think Sarah could have sold Gypsy several times over (joint 4th place)!. There were two dressing fences on the xc which needed careful collaboration to void dastardly penalties but our girls did extremely well.
Very many thanks,
