As anticipated, the first show in the Bicester Riding Club Summer Dressage Series on 12th May was a huge success. With 44 horses competing it was a very busy day and luckily the weather was good too!
Thanks to the backing of new sponsors, Stable Quarters Horse Box Hire, the new, luxury, three tier rosettes went down to 8th place so even more people went home with a smile on their face and a superb rosette to cherish.
Emma Richardson-Steele, the club chairman said, ‘We are very lucky to have a willing team of helpers so these shows are well run and well supported. We even provide you with a caller if you need one (or if you suddenly find you’ve forgotten the test you learned so well!)’.
Bicester Riding Club is becoming well-known and much loved for its excellent catering, particularly their delicious chocolate brownies, courtesy of Emma Bradley, their passionate Club Secretary. Emma is not only an outstanding chef, she is also the British Riding Clubs Volunteer of the Year!
Sarah Davies won two classes, Class 3 and Class 4 with Leahness Chancer.
Jo Haw-Cook gives Jess a well deserved pat after a well ridden test. The pair won Class 2 and then went on to receive 6th place in Class 3. This was this horse’s first outing and first ever test – a great result!
