Anthony - and Nobby - claim top spot

ANTHONY Turnbull took the honours on his lovely 4year old Nobby in class 3 the novice, knocking Rachel Tolhurst off top spot for the first time this season,

But a win in the prelim riding Chloe Eclipse has kept them in the lead for the points championship with Sarah Little in close contention.

The senior introductory was won by Tricia Cole and her skewbald Oliver, keeping their unbeaten record this season which is a fantastic result for someone who had never done dressage until this year.

The under 14s went to Emilia Fandaoutski, who again is unbeaten at this level so she is runaway leader at the moment for the championship.

Well done to all who took part and thank you to the judge Wendy Knapton.

The next date is Thursday 30 June.
