Regional Showjumping Qualifiers 2018 Success(April 14, 2018)
North Midlands RDA's first ever Regional Showjumping Qualifiers Success!
What a great day we had hosting the first ever North Midlands Regional Show Jumping competition here at Scropton RDA Centre. A total of 15 riders took part, coming from Scropton and Belvoir Vale RDA groups.
Although the weather was cold and wet, nothing could dampen the enthausiasm of the riders. Everyone competed their classes in good form, even with a few last minute changes of horses!
The judge was Claire Pope, a Para Show Jumper and RDA Showjumping Trainer. Claire said "I was delighted to judge at the first ever Showjumping Qualifiers for the North Midlands. The pony's were all turned out beautifully and the riders did a fantastic job, it was a pleasure to judge. Good luck to those that qualified for the National Championships. Hope to see you all again next year and hopefully more competitors."

Although this year's competition only covered levels 1 and 2, all the riders are keen to develop their jumping ability so who knows what we might achieve next year. Congratulations and good luck to the four riders who will now be representing the North Midlands region at RDA National Championships this year - The results of all the classes are shown below.
