Grandslam - 8th May 2016

What a beautiful day it was yesterday sun glasses and sun creams at the ready!
If you noted our previous posting concerning Grandslam you will remember there
was a tie for first place at the end of our 80cm Pony Grandslam Champions League. Our contenders
were Rebecca Wilkins with Star and Emily Scott with Winter Flame.
Yesterdays ‘decider’ confirmed 13 yr old Rebecca Wilkins with Star to be our 80cm Pony Grandslam Champion for 2015/2016. Emily with Flame went first but unfortunately had the first part of the
double down. Rebecca rode her beloved little Star and kept a cool head to master a lovely clear round. Rebecca can always remember she won her own Grandslam Championship the day Michael Jung famously won his at Badminton!!
We would like to congratulate Rebecca and Emily on their performances. Two lovely young girls who are great competitors here at Lane Farm, enjoying an exciting finish to their Championship.
True young sportswoman with their horsey passion at heart but with such friendly and happy attitudes. Well Done Girls!
Our decider for Reserve Champion in the 80cm Horse Grandslam was one by Jade Smith on Popular Demand. Jess Hayes and Valentino gave her best, knocking seconds off the time but unfortunately had a fence down.
