Paigan Gould competed in Grade 4, she was coming equal 2nd after the dressage with a score of 34, had a perfect show jumping and finished 2nd outright, she was very excited as this was only her 2nd Grade 4 event. There were Approx 18 riders in this Grade.
Hannah Gould competed in Grade 3, she was coming 6th after dressage (there was only 7 in it) with a score of 60, she did a good job in the dressage and her horse Chloe was very relaxed. They then jumped beautifully and finished 3rd overall.

Abby also did Grade 4 dressage which was the "C" test she ended up with a score of 63. Not sure of her overall placing
Hannah also competed in "D" grade showing jumping which she was lucky enough to win after jumping beautifully in the final round with the jumps at maximum height, great effort Hannah.
Paigan and Molly competed in "E" grade show jumping they both went clear in the first round and made the jump off, with the jumps at maximum height, Sandy decided they were out of his league and refused twice so they were eliminated. Molly after her earlier disappointment of being eliminated was determined to get around clear she did this with perfection and finished 4th after the jump off, so all and all a very successful day with everyone achieving something for the day.
