Success for Waveney Harriers at Pony Club Area Horse Trials
The Waveney Harriers branch of the Pony Club had a hugely successful outing to the Pony Club Area Horse Trials at Little Downham.
The Novice team of Otillie Mitchell (Ballindine Boy), Isabella Regis (Magic Millie), Isla Craggs (King's Lady) and Martha Craggs (Pebbly Outback) were emphatic winners against 29 teams from across East Anglia.
They are all set now to go to the Pony Club Novice Championships in Cheshire in later this month.
To add icing to the cake Isabella won her section individually, Martha was second in hers and Otillie was third in hers.
Then to add to Waveney's triumphant day, Hannah Talbot, a Durham University student, riding Broadford Queen, qualified for the Pony Club Open Championships.
The cross country course, run on near perfect going at Little Downham, was tough and technical and caused spills and thrills all day but Hannah and Broadford Queen stormed home clear with no time penalties.
