21ST APRIL 2018

ORC sent a Junior 90 Team along with Individuals in most classes to the Area 5 Eventer Challenge Qualifier which comprised of tricky show jumping course in slippery conditions followed by a cross country course with some technical questions. Glorious sunshine for most of the day meant great conditions for picnics baskets and our supporters were out in force. 

Junior 80 Gabe Cardona (Jessie) placed 6th 

Senior 80 Sophie Tompkins (Willow)

Senior Open 80 Libby Cooke (Nelly) place 5th 

Junior 90 Team placed 1ST along with individual placings for Emma Stringer (George) 1st, Silvia Irvine (Oscar) 3rd and Maddie Sinclair (Bob) 4th

Senior 90 Libby Reeves (Cello)

Senior 100 Felicity Wilson (Flopsey)

Great performances all round and wonderful to see ORC represented in such a good spread to classes. Looking forward to the summer season of qualifiers.

BRC Area 5 Combined Training

Solihull Riding Club

1 April 2018


ORC sent a Senior team, 2 Senior individuals and 1 Junior to the Combined Training at Solihull. The competition consisted of 2 dressage levels, BRC90 and BRC100 and 2 SJ heights - 75cms and 85cms.  The teams required 2 members at each level.  A great day with an albeit early start for the BRC90 competitors, and some amazing results.  Happily the rain stayed away for once and it was a very successful day with 6 clear SJ rounds out of the 7, all scored in 60's or above with 4 dressage scores over 65% including one 74%!! 

Senior Team placed 6th overall out of 27 teams!                                                                         Sophie Tompkins  (Willow) 6th, Bernadette Evans 4th (Ted) - BRC90                             Olivia Sinclair (Diamond), Isla Finney (Epic) - BRC100
