Martin Dyer qualified as an individual at the Area Horse Trials riding Heather Child's lovely young horse Benjamin Britton in July.
The Championships is held at Aston Le Walls in Northampton - a very long way!!
The Dressage and Show jumping phases were on Saturday 4th August. Martin scored 34 in the dressage which was a slightly disappointing score on previous performances but he jumped a very tidy show jumping round just clocking up 4 faults with an unlucky pole. The cross country which was on the following day had some influential fences but Benjie flew around well within the time to move up 8 places finishing a very creditable 12th on a score of 38.
The whole event was well run, good fun and gave a valuable experience to a young talented horse!
