Pinewood Hosts Eventers Challenge

challenge 1

During Half Term Pinewood hosted and sponsored the NSEA Eventers Challenge at Rectory Farm.

Fabulous prizes were provided for us by Horse Quest, Sydney Free, Equiflo, and Plusbac – much of which was won by the Pinewood team!

The weather was shocking with torrid rain and gale force winds, but that didn’t put off the Pinewood riders; they were awesome and all rode throughout the day with determination and guts. Each course was very challenging with 20 jumps to remember, and was very twisty, with so many different turns and loops over show jumps, followed by cross-country jumps. All of the riders were amazing and so supportive of each other, cheering and clapping. It was wonderful to see Pinewood children so happy and achieving such incredible results. The Fitzgeralds were there all day from start to finish! All of the Pinewood team should be very proud of themselves.
