Well done to team Merrist Wood South at the Indoor Championships. (Linda Hill bearing her sashes for small pony pair champion and supreme small pony champion). There was massive support from the crowd, cheering and supporting all the drivers, although this did create a few errors from some who got a bit too enthusiastic! I have to say that all our drivers competed very well and were a pleasure to watch.
Brockham Member, Jane Robinson with Mordor clear the notoriously difficult cone number 9 on her way to a clear round with only a few time penalties. Jane finished 6th in a large novice pony class.
Another Brockham member Adrian McLeod with Blue finished a creditable 2nd/reserve champion in the small pony class.
