Wilton ODE at Tenantry Farm, Rockbourne, Sunday 19th June
Our team of Oscara Dowling on May, Lydia Paines on Cooper and Joey Kennedy on Gem rode very well today at the Wilton Pony Club ODE.
In the dressage phase all 3 rode good tests with Osacara and Lydia finishing near the top of their sections. Lydia with 28 penalties and Oscara with 31.3
Next came the Show Jumping over a spooky course and with some determined riding from Lydia and Joey all three rode clear rounds.
Finally the cross country phase around a course that was well built. Osacara was the first to go and started well and rode a good clear round, which she thoroughly enjoyed. Next went Joey on Gem and from a positive start again, rode round for his clear. Lydia then followed but unfortunately Cooper did not like the first jump however he cleared it at the second attempt. He then jumped the rest of the course clear but with an added 20 penalties to their dressage score. Both Joey and Oscara finished on their dressage score and were each 4th in their sections individually.
After a long wait the team was eventually placed 2nd which was a very good result. Well done all.
