Archive for the ‘Dressage’ Category


Well, Sunday saw us getting up just that little bit earlier (even though Saturday had been a late night) so that we could drive down to Winchester to see our daughter Kate competing in a couple of affiliated dressage classes. She was riding Carolyns’ horse Jenna. It’s fair to say that Jenna is not the normal build for a dressage horse as she is a rather large Cob, not a breed necessarily associated with dressage!


Unfortunately we missed the first class but where in plenty of time to see her perform in the second class. After some time in the the warmup ring with some of the other competitors it was time to compete in the next class. This second class was in fact dressage to music, and a qualifying round to move on to regionals.

This video is just a short extract from the start of Kate’s round.

Thankfully Jenna did yet another absolutely wonderful performance and was placed first in her class. Which gave her a first and a third place, well done Jenna and Kate.

As always if you want to see all the images click here.
