Christmas cheer at Laurel View Dressage League

LOCKDOWN number two lifted just in time to run the third leg of the Laurel View Winter Dressage League on Sunday, December 13 and what a festive treat it was! Competitors had been told they could swap their riding jackets for Christmas jumpers, tinsel was added to plaits, while red and green saddlecloths all helped to make the day very colourful. Christmas cheer was in abundance and just what everyone needed for the last competition of 2020.

There were no prizes for the festive dress, but you can judge for yourself by perusing the event photos on the Equi-Tog website. Thanks are extended to everyone involved – competitors, judges, scribes and the whole Laurel View team for the part they played.

The next competition was scheduled for January 17, but as this falls within the dates included in Lockdown number three, this event will not run, leaving the next scheduled date of February 14 as the next opportunity to get to Laurel View for some dressage.

Keep an eye on for details of the latest competitions and activities happening.
