Last year, Surrey rider Damian Charles had a great season with Midsummer Night’s Dream III, qualifying for the H&H Foxhunter final after winning the Foxhunter Second Round at Crofton Manor. In the autumn, back at Crofton Manor, the pair won the Welcome to Yorkshire Winter Grade C Qualifier. We wish them the best of luck at the Yorkshire International 2011.
Another rider due congratulations is Gemma Paternoster, who is based in Elstead, Surrey, with the Carter Family. Gemma has been selected for the 2011-2013 World Class Development Programme, which is funded by UK Sport and works with talented riders to maximise their potential and deliver success.
It is time to start plugging our Area Show. 2 and 3 August 2 are the dates for this year’s Area Show to be held at Vicarage Farm, by kind permission of the Gillespie Family. With horses one day, ponies the next, we are, as usual, looking for very generous Sponsors in order to be able to put on the classes that you would like to jump. Please contact Keith Tollick to discuss sponsorship and let him know what level of class you would like to support – email@example.com – 07836 275301.
Another show that Area 44 is supporting is the National Inter Academy Team Event that is being organised by Corinne Bracken and Carl Belson. It is being held on 16 and 17 August at Weston Lawns. This event has now run for 2 years and Corinne and Carl wish to turn it into THE annual event for Junior Academies across the country. The concept of the show is to give riders and parents the experience of jumping in a team event over 2 days, with all the excitement and camaraderie that goes with it. Offers of help are more than welcome, anything from Team Captains and rosette girls to tea boys, to make it a memorable occasion – firstname.lastname@example.org.
