Winter Dressage Qualifier



Well done to Ruby Allman in her first competition for the club and she came 6th in her Intro test so well done to Ruby! 



On Sunday 27th October we had the novice dressage qualifier which was held at Easton College near Norwich. It is a lovely venue with good surfaces, enough warm up space, a lovely cafeteria and nice warm loos!!

We had two teams and several individual competitors. Those who came were Jess Mace, Joe Mace, Libby Wilson-Smith, Cress Allman, Shirley Stagg, Anne Corke, Emma Sayer, Amy Brownlee, Luisa Edwardes and Bella Stagg.


The day went very smoothly and for once in October, it wasn't raining! Everybody rode really well and both horses and riders seemed to enjoy themselves. Sadly the teams didn't get placed but individually Joe won the Prelim 12, Jess came 2nd in the Prelim 7 and 6th in Prelim 12 and in the Intro. Libby came 4th and Cress was 6th.


For those on young horses or are fairly new to team competitions, the Novice dressage is a really good place to start and hopefully we can have even more people having a go at the summer dressage competition next year.


Many thanks to Julia for organising the entries and the teams and to Finn Valley for supporting our competitions.
