The Wokingham Paper - - ROUND-UP -

WOK­ING­HAM and Emm­brook Bear­wood Club riders took home the rosettes at the Bri­tish Rid­ing Clubs Na­tional Cham­pi­onships.

Tak­ing place in Lin­coln, Sarah Gee en­joyed in­di­vid­ual suc­cess, fin­ish­ing third in the se­nior dres­sage.

The team event saw Sarah Thomas (rid­ing David­off), Laura Wright (Za­zoo), Steph Reid (White­hill Boy) and Amy Dale (O’Reilly) place ninth over­all while Dale was the over­all se­nior cham­pion.

The se­nior showjump­ing proved a trick­ier chal­lenge, fail­ing to place with the team of Thomas, Re­becca Lloyd, Gee and Dale.

But in the Team of Four dres­sage, Wok­ing­ham se­cured a re­spectable sixth-place fin­ish out of 18 with the quar­tet of Thomas, Dale, Gee and Wright.

In the Na­tional Horse Tri­als at Swal­cliffe Park, Ele Sparkes (Kazan) and Tessa Ward (Es­sanelle Cruz) placed 10th and 11th re­spec­tively in the ju­niors 100cm event.

In the se­niors 80cm level, Gee won her arena with a dres­sage score of 25.3, but the team of her­self, Sara Ben­nett, Caro­line

Sykes and Naomi Mul­li­gan could not place.

But Lau­ren Huddy, rid­ing Char­lie, sealed 10th spot in the 90cm long for­mat event­ing.
