Winter League - Competition 2
Competition 28th November - PTV in Bantry
We had another fantastic turnout for our second league event held in Bantry Bay Pony Trekking, with a total of 18 riders taking to the arena.
The course was designed by Chef de Piste Elaine, and Frances was our Technical Delegate. On arrival, it was all hands on deck to help set up the course. With the course maps in hand people helped manoeuvre equipment, measure and mark out the 50m corridor, the slalom and the other obstacles needed. The course consisted of 8 obstacles 1-8 repeated for obstacles 9-16. The overall lap would be untimed, as there were a number of timed obstacles within the course to contend with.
The riding order was the same as the first leg, so Level 3, Level 2, Level 1. Adèle and Bastian judged all levels, with help from riders and their helpers - while one level was competing, riders of the other two levels were in the arena judging obstacles, acting as scribes for some obstacles, and/or rebuilding obstacles as required.
Many thanks to Georgia and Bantry Bay Pony Trekking for the use of their facilities, to all the riders, judges and helpers, to Frances as the Technical Delegate, and to Elaine for designing the course (and also for sending the scoresheets to Jill to input into the scoring spreadsheet).
Please find below the results summary. With Christmas fast approaching, we are taking a break from the events until the new year - let us hope that the numbers will begin to drop soon and allow us to continue our plans for training and events in 2022 (provisional dates etc. to be confirmed at our AGM in January).
