Christmas Cracker
Feels a bit weird to say the C word but we have to applaud our Cracker 2021 riders...

Many of our riders entered moved up a level from last year. Lots of individual frillies and achievements. Tactically, with the team scoring done off percentages and not placings, that went against us this year but we're so bloomin' proud of the progression our gals have made. 
Holly Evans and Maisy 6th
Georgina Pearce and Tuffty 5th
Bizzy Loffet, 4th on both Gaudi & Darren
Melanie Arnold and Xippy 1st
Katie Jones, 8th place on Lou Hickley's Nettie 
Emma Hunter & Duckling, scoring over 65% in their first Novice Champs
Helen Roberts 11th in F's first attempt at Medium
