As part of the ‘Jogos de Portugal’, the Special Olympics National Championship was held at the 4th Squadron of the GNR in Ajuda, Lisboa, in early November.
Having completed two qualifying competitions held in the Algarve, three riders from NECI qualified for the National Championship. Lagos town hall kindly provided transport up to Lisbon where Raquel Correia, Vera Alves and Cristina Silva represented the Western Algarve.
We are proud to announce that Raquel Correia obtained 2nd place in the CS working trail, Vera Alves secured 5th place in the CS Working Trail and Cristina Silva obtained 3rd place in CI Dressage. Lots of happy smiles to be seen!
Now we wait with baited breath to see if any of our riders have qualified for the World Championships in 2023. Please keep everything crossed!
