It has been a busy month for Karen and April Joynson and they have been in touch to tell us about their successes throughout July and August and what is to come this September…
Karen tells us, ‘July was full on with the British Dressage BYRDS Inter-Regionals and then waiting for them to hear if they were selected for the England team was nail biting! In the meantime, April also took part in the Badminton Dressage Championships and finished with fab results, and to top it off we then found out April and Robin were selected to ride on the team, with her taking Elegance as a reserve! April and both horses were chosen to ride at the Under 25’s Sheepgate BYRDS Team Championships at both Novice and Elementary level and they also took part in the Novice National Under 25’s Championships, where out of 90 riders, April came 5th & went through to the finals.’
Aside from dressage, April and Robin took part in the National Riding Club Style Show Jumping Championships which were held at Hartpury College, where they came Individual 5th 2nd with the team. Also, their stallion, Rooks Corker, also went to his first show and behaved impeccably, coming home with two second place rosettes.
The month ahead brings plenty of excitement for Team Joynson, with April and Ellie competing together at in Novice and Elementary Classes at the PetPlan Equine Area Festivals, and also Robin will be entered into the Riding Club National Dressage to Music Championships, having qualified in Novice and Elementary. Also, after qualifying both Robin and Jim for the Elementary BYRDS Myquest & Team Quest classes, April will be off to the Regional Championships! Karen also has a big yard move at the end of the month so it looks like September will be a very busy, but hopefully very successful month for this mother and daughter duo!
