An official practice day for Team SA was held at Bekker Equestrian Academy on Saturday 29th August. All team members were in attendance (even El-Rico all the way from the Free State!), and a mock competition was held to determine baseline scores and to practice the format of the GP competition.
Thank you to Amali for judging, Deon and Zelda for scoring and timekeeping, and to all the arrow pullers - Stephan, Stevie (Bekker Equestrian) and Basheru (K&P).
Also to Bekker Equestrian Academy (Jenna Elliott especially) for hosting everyone, and making sure all Covid rules and regulations were followed.
And a big thank you to Deirdre for organizing the day - there is a lot of preparation that has to be done before, during and after such an event.
The next official practice day will be held on 3rd October at the same venue.
The team will compete in the IHAA GP on 10th October.
