Area dressage 15/07/18 @ St Leonards

**Area Dressage** What a scorcher! Everyone’s turnout was outstanding and again teamwork was brilliant at Tetcott Base!
It was debut dressage appearance in the Grassroots for Anna & Abi Curtis on Prince and Jasper and despite them giving Anna’s number away causing all sorts of confusion they both did 66%+ tests, Emily Skipp did a lovely test too together with Alicia Old’s 70% gave a good team score and individual 5th for Alicia qualifying her individually for the Regional Champs in Sept!
The Novice team suffered a blow with both Imogen and Sox being lamed. Alex had some super comments like Good bal showing the hard work Alex has put in, and 8s! Daniella rode Silver and Monty both getting 66% putting them 9th and 10th individually so with Alex’s 64% They had team 5th, rosettes only to 2nd though ☹️. Brontë did an individual Intermediate test and came 4th missing out qualifying by 0.5%.
In the walk trot test Esme did a fab solo test without it being called and was 7th. Fab result for her first dressage test!
A huge thank you to Sam Harding for helping them all warm up and her training in the run up and to everyone for coping with the heat so well, and looking and riding beautifully.
All those lovely judges comments were thoroughly well deserved!
