There were gold medals to be won at Friars Hill Stables mini one-day event which was held for yard members at Sinnington on Sunday.

Competitors enjoyed a break from the wet weather and were able to enjoy a cross country course with good conditions seeing plenty of clear rounds, although some of the fences proved to be a bit more interesting for some horses more used to the showjumping arena!

Alison Champion won the pre-novice class on her talented highland Molly with Sue Bell claiming the gold medal in the novice class riding Quest.

Adults and children of various abilities competed together which provided a fun and friendly competition which was enjoyed by everyone who took part.

Fran Mason, who came third in the pre-novice class on her ex-racehorse Ronnie said: “It was a really fun event and it was great to finally be able to do some cross country riding which we all really enjoyed.”

Every competitor received a medal with the top placed riders in each class receiving theirs on the winner’s podium.
