The first team competitions took place at the start of November on consecutive soggy weekends at Summerhouse EC.
First up were the Novice Show jumpers with the team consisting of Ashleigh Carver, Lynn Miller, Steph Carter and Alice Riddiford. Unfortunately Alice took a tumble in the first round but after a trip to A&E was discharged luckily with no broken bones. The team went on to finish in 11th place so well done to all.
The following Sunday was the turn of the dressage riders with thrre teams representing the club, two riding a prelim and two riding a novice test.

On the Stars Team were Alex Richards, Nicci Cunnigham, Fiona Hunt and Emma Flood.
The Spots Team were Wendy Barke, Vikki Swindell, Hayley Jones and Sian Coles.
The Stripes Team were Alison Brown, Jo Yeo, Katherine Hills and Sarah Highet.

Well done to Vikki who finished 2nd in her arena and Alex who finished 5th in her arena.
