Reality beats Virtual at Laurel View dressage competitions

- Advertisment -

WAY back in May, Laurel View, Templepatrick ran their first ever virtual dressage show – with Covid 19 causing havoc on ‘normal’ life, it was a way to run their annual charity fundraising dressage show. The fantastic sum of £760 was raised for the essential work of Aware NI, for which Laurel View would like to sincerely thank everyone involved for their support. The biggest plus for the virtual alternative was that distance was no barrier, with entries received from as far away as Tipperary!

Summer passed in a blur and it was October 25 before Laurel View hosted a physical dressage competition, the first ‘real’ competition in over seven months! Demand proved high and entries had to be capped to allow the event to run safely and compliantly. The tests ran over a 10 hour period, so it was a very long day, but it was so good to have physical competitors back at the centre.

The November competition proved equally popular – there was another splendid marathon of dressage on November 22.

The next date is scheduled for Sunday, December 13, just after the two-week lockdown period, so everyone is keeping their fingers crossed and sanitised in the hope that restrictions will be lifted to allow the competition to run. Keep up with the latest information at www.laurelview.co.uk
