A good entry and good weather helped to create a cheerful competitive atmosphere at our first Combined Training Show held in association with Colraine E. C.
There were classes at 4 height levels for the Combined Training each with points for end of season trophies. A beautifully built showjumping course in Colraine's enormous arena encouraged bold flowing rounds and the horses jumped it well, but there was enough challenge to ensure that clear rounds were well earned.
The 5 Dressage only classes were also qualifiers for the Cricklands Unaffiliated Championships of GB to be held in October this year. Competition was keen and some high scores were achieved, several over 70%, so some members may now be heading for Cricklands in the Autumn.
Thanks to all who helped the day run smoothly, our stewards did a great job keeping competitors informed, and thanks to Mike Gadsden and his team at Colraine for all their hard work preparing and running the different arenas and doing the entries, scores, and results which appeared on the Colraine website the same evening.
