East Region Show and Qualifier 2018

On Sunday 20th May the Cambs College Group hosted the East Region's annual show, which stands alone but also acts as the qualifier for the RDA National Championships, which this year will be held from 13th-15th July at Hartpury College.

The Group had riders competing in dressage and countryside challenge, as well as having already completed video entries in showjumping and musical rides. There must also be a special mention for Jodie Williamson, who astonished the judges of the Stable Management Quiz with her flawless knowledge - they couldn't find anything she didn't know the answer to!

As a whole, the Group had an exceptional day, with many riders qualifying for the National Championships, including several who will be attending for the first time (for full results, please click here). Enormous congratulations to all of them!

Many thanks and congratulations also to all the horses and, of course, to our fabulous volunteers who give up a lot of time on the day itself and beforehand to help the riders to prepare. It's no mean feat to share five horses out over a large number of riders and to make sure that horses and riders are immaculately turned out, safe and happy, and in the right place at the right time! In particular the riders would like to thank Gillian for masterminding the proceedings and for bearing the very hot temperatures in the indoor school all morning.
