On the 30th March 2019 the FAN Equestrian Team competed at Forest Edge Ariana in the NSEA Eventers Challenge. The Eventers Challenge is a course split into two halves. The first half is shoe jumps and the second half are cross country jumps. It’s aim is to test riders skill and ability.
Two members of the team competed at the event: Maxwell Lake and Robbie Bell. The both competed in the 75cm Class and the 85cm Class. Robbie went first in the 75cm Class on Arden Silver Shadow. He had a lovely round coming home with a Clear round. After a short break Maxwell had his round on Schoolmaster, he had a nice round but had four faults due to a stop in the transition between show jumps to cross country fences. Robbie then went last out of the team on Liscannor Prince. He had eight faults due to knocking down two poles but still a lovely round.
After that class there was the 85cm Class. Robbie went first on Arden Silver Shadow. He again had a lovely round but had four faults due to a pole being knocked down. Next Maxwell had his round on Schoolmaster, it was a lovely round but had four faults due to a pole being knocked down as he went too deep into the fence. Finally Robbie went in on Liscannor Prince. He had a good round but had four faults due to again going too deep into he fence.
All in all it was a good day and enjoyed by all. From the whole team we would like to thank our Team Manager Helen Bell and sponsor Jeremy Lake ( Jem Lake Handmade Kitchens and Interiors) for helping the team throughout the day. We would also like to thank our other sponsors: Wensum Valley Veterinary Surgeons, Jacks Gentlemans Barbers, Grocott and Murfitt Property Developments, as well as Jem Lake Handmade Kitchens and Interiors for their continual support.
