Another great day out for Bedlington, Blyth & District!

Sunday 13th January 2013
Centurion EC, Durham

The riding club has been trying really hard over the last year or so to boost member, with now over 100 members, and a good junior section too. With Winter League competitions currently running across Area 2, the Bedlington, Blyth & District enjoyed another successful weekend!

Entering two team to the Grassroots dressage - no riders with BD points were allowed to enter, the club managed to collect points for the league across both.


Bedlington & Blyth Foxy Trotters had 3 members meaning that they had no score to drop coming into the results - but they proved they didn't need it coming 1st overall! Bedlington & Blyth Charlston Chicks also did well, with having 4 members, and came 4th across all the teams entered. To top the day off, a 3 member junior team was also entered, and the Bedlington & Blyth Bosonova Babes came 3rd in their section.

A great day was had by all! Well done to everyone!

Thomas' Performance
With a fantastic result last week, Thomas and I were keen to repeat this performance. We had a very pleasing outing, although not as strong as the previous week, but still very good result being marked by a BD list judge - we scored 63.2% and came 8th overall.

We also took part in some indoor XC training on Saturday for the riding club. It was great fun, having a lesson with 3 other members, and having a go at jumping corners, bounces, brushes, narrows etc - we even jumped a Novice height corner which was a great feeling, even if a little nerve wracking! We've got a short video, taken by Andrew from the sideline, of us coming over a small triple bounce, using a water tray to simulate a ditch.


Next weekend, we've got some show jumping, so we'll be sure to write a report on that too!
