On Saturday, it was the turn of the 80cm team of Ellie Fredericks, Katinka Beckett and Sophie Flann. Ellie - on her terrific spotty pony, Oscar - did brilliantly to come 2nd individually (she would have won but for a frustrating pole show jumping - having done the best dressage of the day 27!) and Katinka was an impressive 7th in her section.
Sunday was the turn of the 90cm team: Ellie, Oli Ring, Lily Mallinson and Amber Fletcher. They all did very good dressage tests, (Ellie 24!),show-jumped beautifully and flew round the cross-country course to end up 2nd in the team competition - just a few time penalties behind Cheam, but in front of 14 other teams from around the area. Amber was 2nd individually and Ellie (on Bridget Halls 6 year old Joubert) was 7th. As they were flying round the XC course the commentator praised the Dauntsey's entry form for being legible, cogent and correctly punctuated - thanks to Jo Flann for that!
A very successful weekend of 2nd's and 7th's.
Thanks to Cinda for shouting at us all, to Ali and Katharine and Beth for coming to support - and well done to riders and their mounts.
Also, student placement Anna Wilson rode Simon Halls Ordnance Hill at the Larkhill event and finished a creditable 3rd in the 90cm preparing them for their first BE event at mount Ballan on Wednesday.
