We have had our first winter league competition, grass roots dressage, what a lot of teams 29 in all, a very good day and lots of new people entering. We held the novice show jumping qualifiers alongside the Winter League Novice Show Jumping at Alnwick Ford, not so many teams, but lots of exciting jumping. The Winter League Grass Roots Show Juming proved to be popular, but together with good course builder and judges we manage t have the intermediae SJ qualifier as well, and got through a busy day. Thank you to all the helpers, and officials. We held the Riding Test part of the Windter League at Holmside Hall EC, thank you Danielle and her family for the use of her venue. Results are on the result page, look forward to seeing you all at the next competition, Novice Dressage qualifier at Alnwick Ford EC with kind permission of Martyn Johnson..
