A Double for Melissa at Senior Amateur Championships

Essex rider Melissa Eagles made it a double at the recent Wales & West Senior Amateur Championships on Friday 8th to Sunday 10th August when finishing equal first in the 1.00cms class on board Knockrath Spring and as the outright winner of the 70cms class with Tara III.

Equalling Melissa in the 1.00m was Laura Davies from Rhondda with Bolgoednewydd Toy Faere while Essex was once again represented by Toni Evans and Hermione V who finished third.

The largest class, with 25 double clears, was the 90cms; the best of these was Surrey’s Sam Holmes with Sea Breeze. In second place was Lauren Hopes (Berkshire) and Rox Are The Business with Scarlett Baker from Essex and Matanique in third.

The Championships are normally held over two rounds but the final day’s classes were cancelled due to torrential rain and organisers took the decision to allow results from Heat 1 to stand as the Championships final.
