And finally, thanks to all those many who put up bunting, designed wonderful artifacts to decorate the approaches to and the village itself and generally helped make 1 May a special day for all in the dale.

Unfortunately the score at half time was less glorious, at 4:1 to KMS and for those who do not want to know the final score, look away now: KMS 6, RFC1. However the Rosedale team did very well to get to the semi-finals this year. Thanks to all who played, organised and supported the team. The fixture list for next season will be published on the site so all can support their local team..

xRiding Club Champions of Great Britain !

North Ryedale’s team was led by Pat Anderson riding her own, homebred Starlight Temptress, Vicki Seller riding Marbles, Kayleigh Marwood riding Aurburn Rattle and Jen Foster riding Ryemanor Iroco. All who live in the Rosedale Abbey area of the North Yorkshire Moors.

Hartpury Equine College hosted the Riding Club Novice Indoor Showjumping Championships on Saturday 30th/Sunday 31st March.

 29 teams from all over Great Britain took part, after qualifying at regional level. North Ryedale qualified out of 26 teams from area 4 at Bishop Burton after a fierce jump off in October 2012.

 North Ryedale’s team was led by Pat Anderson riding her own, homebred Starlight Temptress, Vicki Seller riding Marbles, Kayleigh Marwood riding Aurburn Rattle and Jen Foster riding Ryemanor Iroco. All who live in the Rosedale Abbey area of the North Yorkshire Moors.

 Pat, the veteran member of the team at 66yrs, jumped a beautiful double clear, setting the standard for the 3 younger members, whose ages when combined only make 65!!

 Having finished the first round on a zero score along with another 9 teams, all was to play for in the second round.

 Vicki jumping first went clear, followed by Kayleigh who unfortunately tipped the last fence. The pressure was on. Pat once again performed a foot perfect round which left full pressure on Jen Foster and her reserve novice horse to pull it out of the bag!  With only 3 scores to count, a final clear round was the only option for Jen.

 Luckily everything went to plan, leaving North Ryedale with the first zero score, proving too much pressure for the other teams, leaving North Ryedale the outright winners! The EquestrianClearance.com Riding Club Novice Winter Indoor Showjumping Champions!! On Sunday North Ryedale’s junior team narrowly missed out on the Junior title coming 2nd.

 We’d like to thank Fiona Foster and Ann Sibsey who kept everyone organised beforehand and throughout the competition. It couldn’t have been done without their hard work and dedication!

winners!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

xLocal Sporting Success

Jon Zigmond came second overall in the UK Triathlon National League for his age group. No mean feat. Results as follows:-
Bala Middle Distance [1.25 miles swim + 51 miles bike + 12.5 miles run on tough course in Snowdonia ] : 6 hours 19 mins
The Outlaw [2.4 miles swim + 112 miles bike + 26.2 miles run] : 13 hours 55 mins
Challenge Henley-on-Thames [2.4 miles swim + 112 miles bike + 26.2 miles run] : 14 hours 27 mins.
Jon has some tough competition in his age group as his scores would have made him the winner of two younger age groups (40-44 and 55-59). Next season it will be all to swim, bike and run for !

xCongratulations !

To Lydia Coote and Ava Gillies, who both represented Yorkshire this weekend in the Girls Under 13 Development Tournament. It was a fierce competition and Yorkshire were drawn in the toughest group and had to play both the finalists.

Final place, was 5th after winning 3 and losing 2 ! Well done to both for a very strong performance and in a team of 11 girls drawn from all over the County it is an excellent achievement for two lass’s to come from our small village !

Thanks to Coach Martin for his Friday night Basketball Club at the Ryedale Leisure Centre and Coach Pat Smith of Hatfield Flyers and Coach of Yorkshire U13 Girls.For more info have a look here
