Winter League Show Jumping
March 2016 – Wheelton Red Cats in the ribbons again!
The March round of the winter League saw a very challenging course. The first round was at 85cm with some tricky lines and distances that really tested the competitors. Our team of Rhiannon Evans (competing at this height for the first time) and Alice Martindale on Her new horse (Can’t Deny It, aka Callum) together with our seasoned riders of Alice Shaw and Pippa Mulready showed their metal and were one of only 5 teams to finish on a zero score after the first round.
The second round saw a change of course and was a substantial 95cm with no teams managing to finish on a zero score. The Wheelton Red Cats put in a sterling performance finishing 6th out of 19 teams, with double clears from Alice Shaw and Pippa Mulready to put them through to the jump off for the individual honors. Both jumped clear yet again to finish 6th and 3rd respectively.
