The Seniors from Ingatestone and Blackmore didn’t fair so well this year with too many second round poles falling putting them out of the placings However it is a great achievement to get to Championships so well done to:

Jenny Brown, Whisper Sweet Nothing; Leona Browne Jake; Alice Quinlan Pleasure Cruise;CarolinaFaulkner Linkwood Dancer.

In the Dressage Championships Ingatestone and Blackmore Juniors had mixed fortunes with Victoria Lee having to return home having almost reached Hartpury due to a crisis at home.  However the remaining three riders tried their hardest against all odds – scaffolding poles being unloaded next to the arena didn’t help. The team of Polly Banfield, Carnsdale Diplomat; Claire Winder, Bucklands Albatross; Georgia Winfield, Flying Circus were not placed but Georgiawas 7th in her arena.

Senior Dressage was contested by Epping Forest Dressage Group (Essendon) Camilla Sheeley, Luna Bailarina; Carly Dimes, Roundhouse; Jan Greenlees, Zeus Stonegrove; Sofie Butchart Zandokan. Congratulations to Carly who was equal 5th in her arena. The team just missed out on the ribbons in 11th place.
