Results :: Nomads Trial :: Zonnebloem :: 22 Mar 2020



This trial was set by Eric and Lindley, with help from Jason and input from Michael.  This means that instead of sections being set from a Masters or Experts perspective, with a concession to allow Clubmen to compete - the sections were set as clubman lines with concessions to the higher classes.

The weather was excellent and the turnout good.  We congregated on the top field, as all the sections were on the perimeter of this field.

Nomads Trial Results - Welgelegen - 23rd June 2019


The sections had been set by Sean Pretorius.  The weather was windless and sunny, following a rain storm the day before.  Sections were wet and slippery.

Mike D'Aguiar was riding clubman due to his having a sore back.  He showed the clubbies appropriate lines and even had the clubmen ride some more challenging lines to help them improve their skills.

Quiet in here...


So I thought I'd better shake things up a bit.

I've been in the UK far too long but the Aussies are dragging the heels with $200 million investments that I need to get a job there. Being away from trials was causing an ache. Watching a trial here and there was ok but I need to ride.
