Being Grand National Day yesterday, we held out very own mini Grand National event at UCRS.
The flag went up at 3pm just as the heavens opened but all 8 competitors survived (all left and all returned!)
The juniors did two laps of the front paddock and one lap of the indoor school, some putting on quite a speed for the finishing line. Krystal on Culla won her section, followed closely by Abbey on Jinty, Isabel on Thorn and Arabella on Ollie!
For the seniors, we had all the famous jumps: Becher's Brook and canal turn! All went off at great speed and most continued the hair-raising gallop throughout.
Molly came in first on Lilly, closely followed by Ilona on Dancer two seconds behind! Alana on Jack was third followed by Aurore on Danny in fourth place.
Well done to all the jockeys and horses, sadly the weather was so awful that we didn't take any pictures... please use your imagination!
