DESPITE the rain earlier in the week, the ground for the third leg of Lusk’s Dressage League was superb, thanks to the hard work of the ground team, Neil and John. The sun shone brightly for the earlier tests and the judges, Fiona Young and Yvette Truesdale, were hard at work all morning – thanks are extended to them and their scribes.
Lusk’s liveries were out in force, fighting for the prizes and it was great to see so many in the line ups. Even Jonny Steele, waiting for the arrival of his second child, won the first class with a very nice four-year-old. The day finished in style, with Michael Boyd giving a display dressed in his tails to win the last two classes on ‘Ballyalt Comet’, in front of an admiring crowd.
