A successful day for Midsomerset and Sid & Otter
qualifying one of their senior teams and Sid & Otter their Junior Team, they all go forward to the Championships over Easter. Well done.
There were 28 senior teams and 6 junior teams competing on the day, which meant for a busy day and as you may know we had to sadly ballot some teams, mainly due to lack of hours of day light.
As the competition had had a change of date and venue many of SWDG were unable to help on the day, although they did the organisation beforehand, Lucy Greenwood, Tracy Scammell and Carolyn Price, but most clubs provided a helper so everything ran smoothly. Many thanks go to June & Helen Pavey, (Quantock) Jackie Meakes, (West Somerset) Helen Goff, (Witheridge) Amanda Champion and Pat Etherington, (Blackdown Hills) Sue Parsons, ( Blackdown Mendip) Mike Cooper, (RNRMEA) Margaret Toye ( Taunton) Margaret Peverley, ( Mid Somerset) Roger Trivett and Cheryl, one handed Beer ( Sid & Otter) Anna Butcher and Adam Ewell (Lamberts Castle).
Adam Ewell and David Batten must have a special mention as they did an amazing job fitting all the lorries and trailers in , and getting them out again !
Thanks must also go to Alice Greenwood who escaped from London for the weekend, Sally Batten, Susan Harris, Sarah Wadey and Helen Dunning for supporting SWDG on the day.
I hope all those that were there enjoyed their day, it was great to see lots of happy, sometimes nervous faces, out and about on their horses !
