Cholmondeley Castle Estate provided a beautiful, leafy back drop for the Pony Club Championships this year. Centre Equitation took place on the first day in glorious sunshine.
Naburn Grange were on top form taking two individual sections (Cammi Brown-Nolan and Emily Cameron) and also the team title. Their retrained racehorse, Corrigan, and his equine colleague Oscar were fantastic. It was tight for the podium places with Friars Hill Stables taking second by just 1.78 marks from Talygarn Equestrian Centre.
For more than forty of the competitors, this was their first time to the Centre Equitation. Cammi Brown-Nolan (Naburn Grange), Amy Deacon (Mill House), Alexandra Bastow (Throstle Nest) and Malissa Yates (Talygarn Equestrian Centre) were awarded the Newcomer rosettes in their section.
We had an amazing turnout of 24 teams for the Centre Equitation this year and for around 40 of the competitors, this was their first visit. Our fab team of volunteers had things under control and we were underway at 9am sharp for the first dressage tests. Yet again, judges for the tack and turnout were extremely impressed with the teams and the Turnout prize was awarded to Low Fold Equestrian Centre.
A busy afternoon of show jumping left Croxteth Park in prime position to take the team award with one of their members, Ashleigh Cole, winning her section.
