Arena Eventing fabulous results from NRC
NRC had a super day at the Arena Eventing.
In the 70cm, Sharon Wood placed 1st individually. Our 70cm team Sharon Wood, Abby Ballard and Nichola Peace also placed 1st out of 4 teams and were the only team with 3 clear rounds, finishing 30 points clear of the 2nd placed team. They go through to the Championship at Aston Le Walls 10-12 March 2023. Tara Lyons and Sparkle also took on the 70cm course and did well but were not able to finish this time. I’m sure they’ll be back again next year!
In the 80cm, Sharon and Molly just missed out on a 2nd clear when they tipped the last plank.
In the 90cm Matthew Powers rode Noel Cochrane’s Tricky as Matt’s horse Benson is injured. Despite having not teamed up before, they jumped a super clear to place 4th.
In the 100cm Noel and Tricky jumped another clear to place 2nd overall (but got time faults for going too fast!). Noel also qualified for the Championship as the highest placed individual outside of the winning team. Mikey Winn and Jackson had an unlucky pole to finish 6th overall.
Thank you to our helpers Laura Newton, Moira Winn and Maha Mekkaoui for enabling our members to compete.
