Due to the high level of entries at Thursday night’s Beckside Livery Stables dressage, some people had to go onto a waiting list.
Jacqui Shipman was one of those who had got in for the prelim but was on a wait list for the intro, so when someone dropped out at the last minute
Jacqui took her place. With only 15 minutes to learn the test, she went on to win the class and also took the prelim title as well.
The junior intro went to Xavia Crossling, riding Del Boy who at 22, can out of retirement, especially to compete in these competitions.
The junior prelim is a new class this year for 16 and under, sponsored by Sherlock’s tea rooms. This went to Alice Smith on her eventer Singing Fontino. The novice competitors had to do there tests in the floodlights with the final competitor of the evening, Emma Braim, winning the class.
Thank you to all the sponsors and our judge Alan Voisy.
Next dates: 9 May, 29 May,
12 June and 27 June.
