Eridge Horse Trials 3rd – 4th July 2010 • Photography by Nigel Goddard

T

he going at Eridge was greatly improved this year with a lot of effort and investment spent on aerating the ground, so that the course almost had a spring in the ground. It may well have had a spring, but time was still influential and few in the BE90 and BE100 sections made it home without time penalties. One of the few to get home within the time was Janet Phillips and her striking coloured, Silvern Conetta. Janet is a past master of Eridge and is always one to maximise her result through keeping an eye on the times being posted on the scoreboard during the day. Hildenborough based Janet and Silvern Conetta were part of a local contingent competing at the Grassroots Championships held at Badminton earlier this year. Helen Wilson, stable jockey to the Funnells also used time to her advantage to capitalise on a dressage score of 32 to win BE100 Section A aboard Billy Nit Nat. In BE100 Section C, Gordon Murphy produced a scorching test on C’Est Tout, a pole in the show jumping and a handful of time penalties didn’t matter, with a dressage mark of 21 he still managed to take the red rosette ahead of Helen Wilson and Billy Good Times.
