We had four competitors at the National Championships in July at Hartpury, in addition to  Adam Lester and Emily Haysom, two of our senior riders, Simon Blight and Mark Jones also took part.  The results for East Park RDA were spectacular with Mark taking 2nd place in his class in the Grade 1 Senior Show Jumping and Simon taking 2nd in the Grade 4 Dressage with a score of 72% – his best yet.

Adam came third in his class in the Countryside Challenge on Rosie—an excellent result in his first senior event.

Emily did exceptionally well on our old favourite Liquorice, winning her section, first visually impaired rider and the David Whigham Trophy for the highest placed Junior in all the classes on Saturday.

To cap it all, Emily won the B.S.P.S Championships W.S. Pettit Memorial Trophy awarded to the highest scoring rider in the Countryside Challenge over all three days, a fantastic achievement !
