Huge congratulations to Daisy and Miss Sky who qualified on Saturday at Eland Lodge for the Hickstead Grassroots Spring Festival  at 70cm. The pair flew round  the course and were pipped by fractions of a second into third place, securing their place at the National finals.   They then continued their flying form by coming 2nd in the 75cm

The following day were the  qualifying rounds for the  ultimate prize of competing at the NSEA Hickstead Elite Festival and entries were from all over the Midlands and beyond 

Only the first  placed rider was to qualify and therefore this position was hotly fought over.

Arabella L and  Jazz used the 70cm as their warm-up round as made a school-girl error of jumping the incorrect course;  Daisy D continued her  form from the Saturday and came home in  2nd  place.

Both girls then competed at 80cm,  which was big and challenging course;  they rode extremely well and both went clear with Arabella and Jazz in 6th place and Daisy and Miss Sky in 7th
