WITH great anticipation, competitors at the Burn Equestrian Centre, Knockbracken Healthcare Park, near Carryduff attended the first leg of a four-week dressage league on Sunday, October 31.
For some, it was their dressage debut; for others, it had been a very long time since they had ridden a test, so nerves were rife – but the relaxed atmosphere, along with the encouragement and positive feedback from judge Angela Morrow were very much appreciated by all!
The next leg will be held this Sunday, November 7 from 12 noon. There are classes for Walk/ Trot and Prelim. Tests are available from the office at the Burn and on their Facebook page. Entries can be made on the day. While proper dress and plaiting are required, the emphasis will be on enjoyment, with no stress!
Competitors need to attend three out of the four legs, including the final, to be eligible for the league.
