BRC Online Championships

Congratulations to our members who qualified for the BRC National Championships for Dressage for 2019/20/21. After much deliberation BRC decided not to cancel but to run these competitions for the 3 years virtually. Behind the scenes our diligent members have been busy practicing under difficult circumstances to video their tests (which were also changed specifically for the competition) then uploading to YouTube and sending off to BRC. The deadline was Easter Sunday and the tests will now be judged. I think you will all agree their dedication to the Club and their turn out was exemplary. Please send them your good luck vibes! 🍀🍀🍀

Special well done to:
Our Novice junior individual Jay Tolley (2019)
Our Intermediate Team of Beth Eckley, Kate Justice, Helen Lipscomb and Sarah Mitchell(2020)
Our Intermediate individual Gemma Webster (2020)

Our Novice individual Ingrid Barker Peck and reserve Ruth Whitehall (2021)

Our Intermediate individual Helen Lipscomb (2021)

Mercian League Dressage 25.10.20

Yesterday was another brilliant day spent doing Dressage for the final event of the Mercian League for 2020. Hosted by the Bewdley Bridle Club, the venue in Stourport was easy to find with lovely surfaces and super friendly stewards and organisers.

Our 3 teams the Twisters, Twirlers and Twerkers were feeling the pressure with only one point between first and second place for the Overall League position and despite one or two technical hitches they managed to perform some pretty good tests.

Alas! The results will not be out until tomorrow and the suspense is killing us. Well done to all those who took part, we hope you enjoyed representing HDRC 🙌🏻🐴
