An Amazing 3rd at the National Pony Club Championships at Cholmondeley in August
The games team competed all day against 24 teams, ending in a very exciting and tense flag race in which we finished one point ahead of the Eglinton Pony Club to get third, beaten only by the Sir WWW and the Atherstone. The team had to learn 12 races for the championship day which started at 8.30 in the morning with tack check and finished at 4.30 with the flag race!
The team was made up of Archie Barlow, Felix Barlow, Tamara Fifield, Lily Diggle , Tabitha Leonard and Jodie Bennett as reserve. The team were very grateful to Isodore Ramsay-Smith who very kindly lent her pony Pip to Tamara. Coached by the ever patient Randall Cooke who tirelessly trains them from January to August. A huge thank-you goes to Randall and his wife Rachel who supports at all the competions.
This year has been the most successful year for the games team, winning at the area competion beating the Sir WWW for the first time in sixteen years!! Following the area the team travelled to Moreton Morrell where we finished second to the Sir WWW.
