Team WOW’s event riders were out in force at Aston Le Walls…

Team WOW’s event riders were out in force at Aston Le Walls last weekend, despite the inclement weather. Kitty King was in flying form, winning a Advanced section on her European Championship selected Persimmon, and being placed in another on Mo Cuiske, who was competing in his first class at the level. He will be aimed at the 8 Yr Old section at Blenheim.

Paul Taoner was not going to run his mount Kilronan across country at all because of the previously hard ground, but the torrential overnight downpour ensured a quick change of plan. “The ground ended up perfect, and so I decided I had better get on with it. And I am going to Italy for a week’s holiday tomorrow where it is currently 30 degrees, so all in all, I am super happy it is raining in England!” he told us. His ride Kilronan performed a smooth double clear to finish 12th.

Francis Whittington, birthday boy on July 27th, got his celebrations off to a fine start with eight rides of varying levels at Aston, and seven clear rounds cross country. As Francis is the seventh son of a seventh son, this was a fairly magical achievement, despite his acknowledged advancing years!
