Well what an evening for our first outdoor event ! Sunshine, rain, hail stones the size of marbles and a blustery wind - but not all at the same time ! It was lovely to see people out with youngsters, new ponies and old hands, and all seemed to really enjoy the event. Could not have done it without our wonderful stewards and judges- thank you so very much. 👏👏👏
Results were :

1st Isobel Wesbroom -Warr
2nd Maureen Capes
3rd Amelia Waddicor
4th Ainsley Turner
5th Alison Dascombe
6th Jo Broadbent

Well done everyone, we’ll try and order more sunshine next time !
Special thanks to James Broome and family for allowing us to use this wonderful site, and James for setting up the obstacles - much appreciated 😀

What dressage test will be used? Will it be the test that will be used for Novice competitors at other BC events as this would give people practice at a test they will use at other events? BC Novice Test 80 & 100 (2019)
