Awliscombe based Harrison Oakley was part of the successful Sid and Otter Valley Riding Club junior team that performed so well at the Championships held over the Easter weekend at Hartpury College in Gloucestershire.
Young Oakley was part of the dressage team of four that had a successful day to finish in sixth position in the overall standings.
In terms of the individual standings, Oakley came top in his section.
He then linked up with Immy and Jasmin Carter from West Hill to compete in the show jumping section. They unfortunately only had a team of three and so were not able to drop one of their scores as their competitors were able to do.
Despite this they all rode the challenging course well finishing on a final score of just four faults over the two rounds. That was sufficient to earn them seventh spot in the overall rankings.
Both junior teams as always were a credit to the club and with fantastic team spirit.
It was an incredibly cold weekend to be sleeping in lorries, but was well worth it to have such fun.
