Lambert s Castle Riding Club sent two Junior teams to the eventing championships held at Aston Le Walls.

Lambert's Castle Riding Club sent two Junior teams to the eventing championships held at Aston Le Walls, near Daventry at the weekend and both were placed.

The Junior Novice team, comprising Jessica Rogers on Woetska, Kate Sopwith on Spotty Harry,

Sophie Benger on McCoy and Olivia Benger on Private Audience, came fifth out of 23 teams, the teams having been from Scotland, Wales and all over England. Both Olivia Benger and Jessica Rogers were also placed fifth in their sections which was a great result.

The Junior Intermediate team of Olivia Benger on Rascal, Billie Ann Warren on Country Rally, Tim Rogers on Corrieview Thomas and Jessica Rogers on Rangeview Solo came fifth as well.

Olivia Benger was again fifth in her section, Tim Rogers sixth in his section, and Jessica Rogers sixth in hers.

The results were especially good, considering the going and changes to the scheduled event. The area had four inches of rain in 24 hours on the Thursday into Friday morning and therefore, the cross-country phase of the event was cancelled.

In its place, an extra round of show jumping was held which made the dressage phase more influential especially in the Junior Novice. In the intermediate, the second show jumping round proved to be influential in the team and individual results.

The LCRC are very proud of their members achieving such good results.

The club welcomes new members, for more details ring the club secretary Irene Robinson (01460) 220387.
