Lambert s Castle Riding Club had a great success at the Area 12 qualifier at Pontispool, near Taunton.

Lambert's Castle Riding Club had a great success at the Area 12 qualifier at Pontispool, near Taunton, where the junior teams won and qualified for the national championships in both the novice and intermediate classes.

The novice team consisted of Kate Sopwith, Jessica Rogers, Olivia Benger and Sophie Benger. Kate won her section on Spotty Harry as did Olivia on Private Audience. Jessica and Sophie were also placed highly. It was a great achievement as there was a very high level of competition.

The intermediate team also did very well, winning their class. The team was Jessica Rogers, Olivia Benger, Billie Ann Warren and Tim Rogers. Unfortunately, Tim was not able to complete the competition through injury, but the rest of the team managed to pull it out of the bag with Jessica winning on Rangeview Solo, Billie Ann coming fourth on Country Rally and Olivia coming fifth on Rascal in each of their sections. Both teams were very pleased with their wins and everyone is looking forward to the national championships which take place in August near Leamington Spa.

Alice Sopwith did extremely well, coming third in the senior open section on Cybill, narrowly missing the chance to qualify for the championships.
