On a not hugely sunny Sunday morning in Lent term, an impressive contingent of CU riders headed out to Yelling to pit the colleges against each other. 5 teams (17 riders) entered is a record in recent years and thanks to everyone for thier enthusiasm. The competition was close throughout with some very good scores. The morning passed almost without mishap, except one unscheduled dismount in the warm up arena and one test started before the bell. The lack of ideal weather was made up for by the impressive spread of tea and cake assembled between us and plenty of carrots and apples to reward our steeds for an excellent mornings riding.
