Getting down to Grassroots


It was a wet and windy start for Emmie  who was flying the flag for Prior’s Field as a solo competitor at the Grassroots show Jumping qualifier at Coombelands last Saturday. Despite the adverse conditions Emmie managed to incur just a few faults in her classes which was an extremely good result especially as the course was particularly spooky including some interesting Derby style cross country jumps.

Georgina, Jess & Evie were the Prior’s Field 90-1m team the next day at the Inter-schools show Jumping qualifier also held at Coombelands. All the girls jumped confident rounds, again over a challenging course with some technical fences including a very unusual Derby style looking skinny with just a few unlucky poles down between them.  They had a slight disadvantage of being just three in a team with no discount score so were delighted to be placed 10th overall.
