Thank you to everyone who wished us well at BRC NAF Five Star National Championships in Lincoln this weekend. We all had a fantastic trip and our horses all behaved and performed so well. We had great ground support from our volunteers and would like to thank them very much for all their help and input. Debbie, Linda, Jim, Elizabeth, Kevin, William, Julie, Andrew and Amy

Our teams all did exceptionally well in huge classes and we all came home with placings and Our Novice and Open teams both finished in 7th place and our Intermediate team were 8th. Both Katie and David went on to do jump offs and both also ended up with 7th places as individuals. Excellent results. Excellent trip, plenty laughs, food, drink and fun but also exhausting!!!! Once the fog and mist cleared in the morning it went on to be one of the hottest days of the year!!
It is a great event to attend and feel privileged as a club to have been once again to Lincoln.
Also a special thanks to our committee who work so hard to ensure we are entered, eligible, organised and ready to compete at the Qualifiers and Championships.


A note from our Chairman Duncan Owen

Well what a weekend!!! Probably the best qualifier for Lothians results   starting with dressage and Sabine's brilliant result in her novice test- 1st place and qualifying for Lincoln- a perfect start for Lothians! Both dressage teams and individuals had minor placings so well done to them for trying so hard and supporting lothians. 

Showjumping teams: 1st 1.05m team, 1st 95cm team, 2nd 85cm team and 1st style team, as well as lots of individual placings so I think this tells its own story of the weekend- just bloody brilliant!!! We have a great club camaraderie so thank you to all who competed and all who help behind the scenes! Roll on Lincoln! What a party we'll have
