2 - Dressage at Kingston Maurward College 11th October
This was mine and Rommelís (BD name -Donnerrhythm) fifth competition together, and I was thrilled with his performance, winning both the novice classes with high scoring percentages. He was so much more relaxed, allowing me to mount and get in the warm up area with very little anxiety; I even managed a smile thanks to my good friend Louise. Everything ran to time as usual thanks to Julie and her team and well done to Kim for calling my tests loud and clear. My dad was pleased but felt I could do better and my husband thought I could sit up straight like Louise- Since when did they become experts?

1 - Dressage Clinic Manor Farm Damerham
The test riding day on 4th October at Manor Farm was a great success.† Many Thanks to Linda who organised the day and such lovely weather.† It was really good to work with some stunning horses and lovely people.† Well done to Sam who has only owned Samson 3 weeks and Julia who rode her first dressage test- well done. Sue rode some great downward transitions, Debbie rode straight and Minnas lovely 4 year old was so well behaved.† Good luck to Laura at her next competition.† Many thanks to Matt for grading the arena so meticulously and to Kim for writing.† Looking forward to the next one and getting some of those spectators involved!
