BRC Arena Eventing Qualifiers

24 October 2020


We are proud to have sent a Junior and Senior team to the BRC Arena Eventing Championships at Bovington.  Despite the awful wind and torrential rain, both teams rode exceptionally well.  The junior team sadly wasn't place on this occasion, however Bertie Stone rode a storming round on Dolly (pictured), and finished exactly on the time to win the 70cm class. This also means he qualifies for the BRC championships at Aston in March 2021.


Di Burgess also picked up 3rd place as a senior individual, and the senior team of Di, Hazel, Natalie and Sam were also placed 3rd. 


Huge congratulations to everyone who took part.

Six SWRC riders cometed in the sunshine at Crofton for the BRC Novice Dresage Qualifiers at Crofton on 17th October.  Sadly our team was down to three riders as Lucy Dawson's Jack had to withdraw, which left Jo Peacock, Karenlee Barrett and Tina Beard to pull out all the stops.  The team performed exceptionally well with Jo Peacock tipping the 70% mark on Dazzle (see photo.)


Tom Dyer, Jo Peacock and Hazel Jackson also competed as indiciduals, with Hazel bringing home an individual second place with a score of 71%, and Tom Dyer also picking up a well deserved 5th place in his class. 


Huge congratulations to everyone who competed.

SWRC were very well represented at the recent Novice Dressage Qualifiers, sending a senior team, a junior individual and two senior individuals to Sparsholt Equine Collage.   The senior team consisted of Tara Hooper, Donna Boyd, Karenlee Barrett and Lucy Dawson, who achieved a respectable 4th place overall, with Tara also being placed 4th and Donna 2nd as individuals.  Abi also finished in the placings, also bringing home a well deserved green rosette.  


Congratulations to Karenlee Barrett, Sam Langford, Natalie Sorell, Abi Goree, Tara, Lucy and Donna for their efforts, and a special thank you to Donna, Tara, Abi and Natalie for taking on volunteer roles to enable us to compete as a team.




Dressage to Music Championships - Quadrille 

28 September 2019

SWRC had a very sucessful, but emotional weekend competing at the Dressage to Music championships and quadrille selection at Bury Farm.  Donna and Sarah kicked off the weekend with a stunning 4th in the elementary pairs, and on Saturday they were joined by Anne and Natalie in the quadrille.  Our quartet were complemented on their costume and music, and in the end they came 5th which is an amazing success.  However Marmite was taken ill soon after the competition and remained with the vet until the next morning.  We wish Marmite the speediest of recoveries. 


A big thank you to all the support team, especially Jan for the amazing costumes.

Festival of the horse Championships

Aston Le Walls

18th-19th May 2019


A massive well done to our amazing juniors who represented us fantastically at the Festival of the horse Champs at Aston Le Walls in the junior Combined Training.


Unfortunately we were down to a team of 3 after Abi Goree had to withdraw due to horse injury but the team of Sorcha Goody, Lucy watling and Ellie Portnell did us proud finishing in a respectable 13th place.

The girls also picked up some individual rosettes! With Sorcha having an ufortunate pole down in the sj she finshed in 14th,

Lucy picked up a 9th place and the aptly named Amazing Pete ridden by Ellie finished a fabulous 3rd to pickup a rosette and a sash.


Well done girls!

And as always a massive thank you to our volunteer for the day Sarah Mitchell-Sheppard and our fabulous sponsors Agricultural water engineers.

A huge congratulations to all our winners and to those of you who picked up a most improved rosette too!


BRC Intermediate Winter Championships

Bury Farm Equestrian Village

26th - 28th April 2019


We sent 1 senior team and  3 individuals to Bury farm for the Inter Winter Champs this weekend.

The weekend started on Friday with Donna Boyd riding Heather Wards George in the Medium/Ad Med pick a  test class. They set us off to a cracking start picking up a 6th place in the medium section and coming 7th overall out of 26 competitors with a great score of 67.1%.

The Saturday arrived bringing galeforce winds and blowing dust clouds across the arenas but our intrepid competitors gave it their all and produced some fabulous scores. First up was Di Burgess riding Right of Way. An unfortunate error of course just dropping her out of the placings in what was otherwise a lovely test ,finished 11th. Next up was Tom Dyer riding PJ who also did a lovely and harmonious test picking up a brilliant 68+% and also finishing 11th.Donna Boyd followed him on her second ride of the weekend Merlin. Merlin managed to contain his stress levels for the 5 mins he was in the arena to get a very respectable 67+% finishing in 12th place and last but not least was Heather Ward riding her own horse this time. Unfortunately George decided he was too tired after a sleepless night in a flappy stable to quite produce the score he managed the previous day but got through his test in a more relaxed fashion to finish 20th.

The team finished in 13th place right in the middle so a pretty fabulous effort all round.


Finally on day 3 Ben Burgess riding U Natural represented us in the Junior elementary individual section. 

This ever consistant pair pulled out all the stops and were rewarded with a fantastic 73.28% and a well deserved 1st place bringing our amazing weekend to a close in the best possible way.

Huge congratulations to our new National Champion! 


Also a huge thank you to Donna Boyd for being our volunteer on Friday which allowed everyone to compete and as always a great big thank you to Agricultural Water Engineers for your continued support of the teams.


Area 17 FOTH Combined Training Qualifiers

Crofton Manor Equestrian Centre

19th April 2019


Sunshine Ponies and rosettes, what more could members ask for?


We started the combined training qualifier with a cracking score of 71% and just a pole down for 4 faults in the sj for Georgie Beard on her new ride Raz on their debut outing, followed by another fabulous score of 68.50% and just 1 down in the sj for Charlie Large giving her an individual 5th in the senior BRC 90 with 75cm sj.

It was a bit of a wait over lunch until the other team members rode in the BRC 100 with 85 sj. Daisy Weir was up first and produced a very respectable 65.33% but had an unfortunate couple of poles in the sj on only their 2nd outing kept them out of the individual placings. Finally came Tom Dyer on the lovely PJ who was very unlucky to have a cheeky stop at the last fence as after his brilliant dressage score of 68.95%  this brought him down to 6th individually.

The team came home with a really well deserved team 5th place.


We also sent a Junior team. In the BRC 90 Ellie Portnell and the unstopable Amazing Pete picked up a 67% and clear sj to finish individually 1st. She was followed by Abi Goree who gave us our highest dressage score of the day and also had a clear sj round to also come 1st riding Teresa Hoopers Raff.

The last 2 competitors of the day were Sorcha Goody and Lucy Watling Completing the Junior team in the BRC 100.

Sorcha and Twiggy had a very respectable 63.16% and another clear round giving her an individual 4th and Lucy rounded the day of riding Cass to pick up 62.63% and giving us a 4th clear round for the junior team and also our 3rd individual 1st.


No surprises then that the Junior team finished with a team 1st and will now head to the FOTH Champs at Aston Le Walls.


Well done to all our competitors and a massive thank to Beth Grenall and Karenlee Barrett for being our volunteers for the day.


And once again a HUGE Thank you goes to Agricultural Water Engineers who sponsor our fantastic teams.

BRC Arena Eventing Championships

Aston Le Walls

10th March 2019


A hugh well done to our team of riders who showed tremendous team spirit in the most adverse of conditions and braved the monsoons to travel up to Aston Le Walls for the 90cm Arena Eventing Championships.


After the qualifiers Martine Kemmish unfortunately suffered a broken wrist which meant she couldnt attend the champs. Already a team of 3 we were keen to get the team numbers up and Donna Boyd and Di Burgess agreed to fill in the gaps.


The Team of Di Burgess, Merc Notton-Hill, Alice Stone and Donna Boyd had a few ups and downs through the day with the course proving to be very testing. there were only a handful of clear rounds all day and a lot of people taking the joker fence at the end of the course. 


However our FOTH Challenge experts Alice and the amazing Adamstown Lady once again proved why they are the best at this by producing a lovely round to just roll the joker at the end.


well done to you all and a massive thank you to Karenlee Barrett who got up at the crack of dawn to drive up and stand outside all morning in the rain to be our volunteer for the morning. We very much appreciated it   ;-)

17th FEB 2019


The First qualifier of the year turned out to be a bit of a mixed bag this year!!!

We sent a senior 80 and junior 80 team to Moreton this year. The seniors were starting with a team of 3 so couldnt afford any whoopsies. The day did not start well. Teresa Hooper went to pick up Ellie Portnell with her own horse safely in the back of the lorry. She arrived at Ellies and opened the ramp and the whole ramp hit the floor!! This left her with her lovely horse stuck in the back and meant that unfortunately neither Teresa or Ellie could get to Moreton :-(

The senior team were now down to just 2 indivduals so no team score. First up was Karenlee Barrett with the gorgeous Eldorado VH Dingenshof. Unfortunately our unlucky start continued and Karenlee had an impromptu dismount.

The Juniors had started in the 2nd arena shortly after that and they kicked our unlucky start into touch by producing some cracking rounds and Lucy Watling riding Cass and Sorcha Goody riding Twiggy both got into the jump off. Lucy finished a fantastic individual 2nd and Sorcha not far behind in 4th. With Kate Greenall and Henrys score helping them to a   brilliant team 2nd place. Not bad for a team of three!

While the girls were busy turning our luck around our final senior Tom Dyer had started his rounds riding PJ. Tom pulled of 2 clears and went into the jump off where he flew round to be just pipped into 2nd place.

Really well done to everone who took part and a massive thank you to all our fabulous volunteers today who were Sheri Start, Lynnie and Grace Reed and Tara and Abi Goree

And as always a great big thank you to our amazing sponsors Agricultural Water Engineers who have once again stepped up to sponsor our teams this year.

Area 17 Arena Eventing Qualifiers

RAC Saddle Club Bovington

24th/25th Nov 2018


The final qualifier of 2018 and what a way to finish the year!!! We sent 3 teams over the 2 day competition. On the Saturday we were represented by Annie Gillott, Sam Langford, Katie Butler and Poppy Firth in the 70 team. Sam, Katie and Poppy all pulled off the double clear and with just a few time faults between them picked up a fabulous team 2nd and Katie also had an individual 6th on her lovely horse Toners Pintada.

Onto day 2 and we sent a 90 and a 100 team. unfortunately both teams were only fielding 3 riders but that didn't stop them! The 90 team of Alice Stone, Martine Kemmish and Mercedes Notton-Hill were up first and did an absolutely amazing job. Both Alice and Martine managed the double clear with just a few time faults to add for Martine and just 2 unlucky poles for Mercedes. Alices double clear within the time gave her a fantastic individual 3rd proving once again why Adamstown Lady and herself are our club experts at this sort of competition. But even better the team came 1st. they will now head for the Championships at Aston Le Walls in March (Whoop Whoop).

Finally the 100 team finished the weekend off for us. Rosie Fowler, Sophie McCarter and Hannah Fowler did us proud with just a few pesky poles for Rosie and Sophie and a brilliant double clear inside the time and an individual 4th for Hannah riding Too Cool they picked up Team 3rd.

Huge Congratulations to all our competitors. no one came home without a rosette and as always an even bigger thank you to our volnteers for the weekend as without you we would not be able to send the teams, Karenlee Barrett, Mercedes Notton-Hill, Beth Greenalll and Donna Boyd.

Finally Thank you again to our wonderful sponsors Agricultural water engineers for you support of our teams this year.

BRC Dressage to music Championships

Bury Farm Equestrian

28th-30th Sept 


On Friday the 28th we sent Sarah Mitchell-Sheppard and Donna Boyd to Bury Farm for the Elementary Pairs music at the Dressage to music Championships and Heather Ward for the Veteran rider class on the Saturday. And what a way to end our 2018 Championships!

Sarah rode Donna's Rinus Star and Donna Rode Heathers Vagebond VD Witheove Z and they had some very original music very kindly put together for them by our resident photographer Keith Markillie of KWM Photography. The music was definately not to the judges taste but the floorplan couldnt be faulted and was foot perfect leaving them in 2nd place......Reserve National Champions!!! Whoop Whoop.

On the Saturday Heather also did a fantastic test on Vagebond VD Witheove Z to pick up a very respectable 8th place in the Veteran riders class. this was a % class (Prelim/novice) and Heather did the harder test (novice) and was acually 2nd out of the novices. Huge well done to everyone and Thank You's go to the fabulous team of supporters who came to cheer them on.
