Georgina and her team are 3rd at the British Championships

Georgina Clarkson attended the British U18 Eventing Championships this weekend and had great success. Only eight riders are selected for each regional team and Georgina was honoured to be chosen as a member of the Northern Team. There were nine regional teams in total and the Northern Team came 3rd. The individual scores for the top four riders on each team go forward to give a team score and Georgina was one of the top four. 

It was a very close competition and the standard was very high, so this was a great result for Georgina and her team. Georgina finished 14th out of 65 on a personal score of 34.5 having added only one show jump down to her dressage score of 30.4.  She rode an impeccable clear cross country round inside the optimum time to add no further penalties to her score. Congratulations Georgina!
