First winners of winter at Laurel View Dressage League

SUNDAY, October 10 and the Laurel View Winter Dressage League was up and running, with a superb and enthusiastic turnout of competitors.

Competition was strong throughout the six classes, with lots of the winning scores in the seventies and top sixties. Congratulations to all the worthy winners listed below and a vote of thanks to all the competitors for making the Laurel View team’s efforts worthwhile.

Huge appreciation to judges Ivor Harper, Angelene Nicholson and Andrew Ross for lending so generously of their time and expertise, with their efficient scribes at their sides.

Check out the photographic records of the competition on the Equi-Tog website.

The league continues throughout the winter, with special mention for the upcoming Charity Dressage Show on December 12, which also doubles as the third leg of the league. All proceeds from the Charity Show are going to Macmillan Cancer Support, in memory of Katherine MacLurg, a great friend and supporter of Laurel View. A few extra special classes appear on the Charity Dressage Schedule, have a look at the full schedule on and get your entries in by noon on Thursday, December 9.
