Combined Training Report Sunday 2nd June 2013
By Lucy Greenwood (event organiser)
On Sunday 2nd June SWDG hosted its first combined training in several years. Classes ranged from Introductory B Walk and Trot test and 1'9 SJ to Novice 34 and a course of 3'3.
For many this was their first competition and from the feedback most people enjoyed this relaxed friendly event and asked for more like it. We were fortunate to have a beautiful weekend of weather and good ground conditions to make the event a pleasure to run.
Shirley Bland and Florrie started the day well by winning the Introductory B dressage and combined training sections. The Prelim 13 dressage section was won by Catherine Goddard and Basil Brush while Charlie Bosenquet and Prosper took the combined training section. Catherine Goddard and Basil Brush took a second win in the Novice 24 dressage section and in the combined training section it was Edwin Atkinson and Artemis who came in 1st. The Novice 34 dressage and combined training sections were won by Whizzy Wadey and Ed.
I would like to thank everyone who made this event possible by their help on the day and in the preparation.
After such positive feedback we will be finding a date to run the next one, keep an eye on the website for updates!
Well done to everyone who took part and hope to see you again soon.
