The East Region at the 2016 National Championships

At the 2016 National Championships the East Region was represented in a number of disciplines, including: dressage, showjumping, countryside challenge, combined training, vaulting, musical ride and arts and crafts. Many of our riders came home with rosettes and there were even a few trophies! The results of all riders who took part are listed below (if you know of someone who is missing from this list, please let us know so that we can add them in).

In order to compete at the Championships the riders must first qualify at the regional show by coming first or second and scoring above 60%, so making it to Hartpury in the first place is a significant achievement.

Many thanks also to the small army of volunteers who helped in myriad ways. There are simply too many people (and indeed jobs!) to list here but the number of people who are prepared to look after equine and human athletes is truly remarkable and very, very much appreciated.
