What a couple of weeks!!
Cleopatra II owned by Judy Firmston-Williams won the Novice Open title at the British Dressage Regionals held at Keysoe on a great score of 74% on Friday 26th of July. Daya then had to go back the next day to contest the Elemenary restricted class, we thought she would probably be a bit tired having competed the day before....we were wrong!
Daya felt amazing on the Saturday, she tried so hard for me, and her test felt great! She won again, this time on 76%, you can see her test on YouTube- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXMcOyUFSN4.
Having had two wins she is now heading towards the British Dressage Summer Nationals in September!
Daya then had two days off before heading to Hickstead International, where she had qualified for the National 6 year old Final.... unbelievably she was Reserve Champion at Hickstead! We received a beautiful rosette and flowers.
Bing, owned by Melise Witkin and Judy Frimston-Williams competed at the British Dressage Regionals held at Addington on Friday 10th August. We had an early start as his test was at 8.58am, and as we entered the arena it started to rain...however, this didn't put Bing off! He produced a beautiful test to score 75% which won the class and gained a National qualification! I now have two horses in the elementary class at the Nationals, lucky me!
