Unprecedented win at National Championships
WBRC had a winning day at the British Riding Club Winter Championship at Bury Farm, Bucks, with a total of five National Champions! See photos below.
The senior team, consisting of Sarah Thomas, Sarah Gee, Liz Jenkins and Tricia Smith, stormed the Intermediate Senior Winter Dressage to gain a historic win. Alongside the team win, Sarah won her prelim class, Liz won her Novice class and Tricia Smith won her Elementary class. Having so many winners from one riding club, is unprecedented in the history of the Intermediate Champs. And as the icing on the cake, this is the second year that WBRC have won the Intermediate Senior Winter Dressage Championship!
Team Manager, Sarah Thomas said, “It’s a truly amazing result, and for the second year in a row. I am the proudest Team Manager ever. WBRC rocks!”
Ian Spalding, also from WBRC, beat the other 92 competitors to become National Champion in the 100 Intermediate Show Jumping National Championships. Ian was one of only two competitors to go double clear. A thrilled Ian said, “I can’t believe it, I’ve never won anything in my life”.
Well done everyone, you did us all proud! #wbrcrocks
