1. In the event she gets up in time to take part . Ans horsewoman. I thought of showjumping, cross country and horseracing but can’t see it.

4.Rudimentary plant all but consumed by odd mice. Ans embryonic (rudimentary). Odd mice are mc but can’t see how to get e at the front and bryoni.

The unfairness of life! I'd come to think that odd in crossworldland meant "take the odd letters of".
Thanks, Mamya. 'Horsewoman' is the obvious answer (and I have researched this elsewhere), but maybe it's so obvious that I can't see anything to explain!
