Report from Eridge ODE

An educational half term week of rallies with biomechanics, show jumping, cross country and a working rally. Some excellent and brave riding has been seen alongside some occasional dismounting! All ages catered for from our older children managing a rally in between exam revision and this lovely trio venturing off the lead rein confidently into and out of the water jump.

Well done to Hope and Red who were 1st and 3rd in the mini class at Eaglesfield today, both having an pole in the next class.
