THERE was a great turnout for the Dressage Show at RDA Causeway Coast Arena on Sunday. It was lovely to see everyone so well turned out – judge Martina McKinley certainly had her work cut out judging!

It was great to see Team RDA Coleraine competing, with Christine Hankin riding ‘Corritani’ in her first show receiving a well deserved fourth place rosette. Diane O’Donovan riding ‘Clarouse’ rode fantastic tests and was presented with the fabulous Perpetual Trophy for Highest Overall Score.

HIGHEST SCORE: Diane O’Donovan receiving her prize for Highest Overall Score from judge Martina McKinley at the RDA Causeway Coast Arena Dressage Day. (FW45-559NN)

The Junior riders did themselves proud, with Amy Brown being named Under 16 winner; the Under 12 win went to Caitlin Weatherup, closely followed by Riona Doherty. A special prize for RDA rider went to Ella Gillespie.
