Area 5 Junior Winter
The Juniors really are on a roll at the moment! With
a first place for the 1.10m SJ team last week, this week we've had
another team and individuals competing in the KBIS Novice winter
dressage at Moreton Morrell - seniors next weekend!
Lots and lots of placings - EVERYBODY got a placing
and a rosette in some busy classes!
The team was made up of Lani King, who scored 64% for 6th in her
warm up test as well as 66% for her team test
Amelia Stevens who came 3rd, on 68% and 7th in the team test on 67%
Freya Browne who won her warm up test on 71%!!! And scored 67% in
the Novice team test
***A special note for William Heaton who smashed it last week, did
it again for a win in his first novice on 70% and a MASSIVE 78% for
second (yes the winner must have been on Valegro - they cleaned the
floor on 85%!) Second place does mean William qualifies for the
championships later in the year! ***
Our individuals did a fantastic job too!
Olivia Taylor (who's only just seven!!!) Did two prelims 65% for 5th
Lara Gascoyne rode a fantastic test for second on 71% in the Prelim
Max Walkden, again another winning team member from last week
turning his hand to dressage managed a solid 70% for 5th
The team managed to finish 3rd out of about eight teams, everybody
really put in a fantastic performance, again a pleasure to be able
to watch, well done guys!!!.
Area 5 Indoor Show Jumping at
Pictures now on line - they are
What a great day, each team with some
rosettes to show for themselves!
Kim Tibble as an individual in the
novice seniors came 3rd on the sublime Laura, the intermediate
seniors came 6th as a team and Sophie Garner also came 6th
individually after a triple clear in each round and massive applause
to the junior 1.10m team who WON their class!!
Really lovely to watch them all ride so brilliantly, very proud of
them and the ponies!
Max Walkden, Phoebe Marot and William Heaton - who also pulled off a
clear in all three rounds to pick up a third individually too! Well
New Year - New Logo
New Year, New Logo
Last year it was suggested that we update the club logo and we asked
members to help with ideas for a new look.
Your ideas were submitted to a professional designer who has produce
a new logo for us. We're delighted with this new logo which says
clearly who NORC is, something that is crucial when members are out
competing under the club's banner!
It is also eyecatching and memorable. The colours will be silver on
navy or navy on white. We hope you will be delighted too.
Watch this space! You will be able to order a numnah and clothing
soon. We will let you know when it's available.
From the NORC Committee.
A successful Junior
