Unfortunately Horsham's riders didn't have the best of trips to the NAF Horse Trials Championships this year. Poor Helen didn't even get to the showground when her lorries clutch decided to pack up on the A34. After a long wait both she and Milo eventually got home safely at midnight.

The remaining riders all did good dressage tests scoring in low 30's. The show jumping proved Suzie and Danny's undoing as sadly they were eliminated. Suzie said he seems to have lost his mojo. Rachel and Lorna both had super rounds in the show jumping going clear and nothing to add to their dressage.

We were now down to 2 in the cross country phase so no chance of a team placing. Rachel set off well on the final phase but unfortunately her horse decided there were monsters living in the ditch and couldn't possibly go over it. This just left Lorna and Jilly who did really well with only one novicey stop at the water but straight over on her second go to still finish inside the time.

Despite not coming home with any rosettes this year everyone had a really fun time with great company
