We had three full teams for area dressage this summer. Nine of us set off for Prees near Whitchurch on Sunday July 23rd.
The Novice team of Justine, Janet, Irene and Ali all did the same test and did very well to come 3rd overall. Individual successes were Janet with a 1st, and Justine and Irene with 9th.
The Open team of Izzy, Elspeth, Myfi and Sally all did separate Novice and Elementary tests and came 4th with individual placing of Izzy 1st, and Elspeth and Myfi 5th.
The Riding Test team of Meg, Justine, Ali and Izzy came 5th with individual placing Izzy 3rd and Justine 9th. Elspeth and Izzy also did the Pairs and came 2nd and Elspeth and Meg did individual tests with Elspeth coming 6th in the Medium.
We had lots of help on the day from family and the support was great, so thank you to everyone who entered and helped. Hopefully we will have as much success in the Winter Qualifiers.
Three members entered the Area Dressage to Music competition at Reaseheath in August.
Christine came 3rd in the Medium test, Nicky 4th in the Novice and Elspeth 2nd in the Elementary. All 3 enjoyed their experience and are planning their next music outings.
Izzy and Janet both made the long journey to Lincoln to take part in the Dressage Championships having qualified in July. Both did extremely well and came 5th in their respective arenas; Izzy in the Novice and Janet in the Preliminary. Janet also entered the Veteran Rider class and came 1st getting a trophy to bring home. Well done! ladies!
