GOODWOOD Pony Club held its highly popular Open Eventers’ Challenge at its club field at Oakwood, near Chichester recently. Fortunately, after a very unsettled week, the weather was kind for the event and stayed dry, albeit a bit windy.

There were classes from 2ft to 2ft 9 and there was clear round jumping all day. It was a nice relaxed competition and for some of the competitors this was their first time competing in an Eventers’ Challenge or even a Cross Country event.

The results were:

Open: 2ft: 1, Ollie Shone; 2, Abbie Volebreght; 3, Zoe Barnett; 4 Georgina Milward; 5,Dorothy Whyte-Venables; 6, Kitty Elwes.

2ft3”: 1, Zoe Barnett; 2 Hannah Mudd; 3 Amy Little; 4 Violet Murch; 5, Paikea Apatu; 6 Kitty Elwes.

2ft6to 2ft9: 1, Anna Sawday; 2, Eleanor De La Fuente; 3, Lucy Dobbs; 4, Rachel Cargill; 5, Freya Walker; 6, Hannah Mudd.

Goodwood Pony Club’s next event is its popular 16 years and under show on Saturday June 16.
