Summer Dressage League

Summer Dressage League

The first leg took place on April at Brithdir in fairly hideous weather. The wind blew, the rain fell and the tem-perature plummeted. But were we downhearted? No! We substituted Pimm’s for hot chocolate and Bailey’s, buttoned up out coats and got on with it.

Some sensible folk resorted to hunting gear, the rest pulled out the waterproofs. We had to abandon using the gazebo and retreat to a stable mid-evening. Well done to our bril-liant and encouraging judge, Judy McKinnon, who was still on crutches from a recent knee op, but kept cheer-ful in spite of the filthy weather. Big thanks to all the insane riders who turned out and to everyone who helped run it. Hopefully our next one will be considerably warmer!
