Shoalhaven Dressage Club June 6th Training day and June 7th 2015 competition
As the winter chill set in, Shoalhaven Dressage Club held a Training / Competition weekend at their home grounds at the Worrigee Equestrian Common. With rain and wind in the days around, the weekend was blessed by sunshine & clear blue skies. Saturday was a training day attended by riders & horses new to dressage. Riders were able to ride through dressage tests and receive invaluable feedback from judges on how to improve their scores for their next competition. Young horses were also able to be familiarised with the sights and sounds of a dressage competition.
Sundays competition was well attended given the wintery weather with classes held from Prepartory level through to Medium. Outstanding scores for the day went to Joanne Simon with 70.26% & Rachael Heron with 71.5% in the Prep. Many of the riders in attendance were juniors getting in practice before the upcoming June State Interschools competition & the July State Young Riders competition. Congratualtions to Juniors Rachel Heron winning both her Prep tests, Geri Wheeler winning both her Novice classes, Zoe Hutchinson & Jessica Steward. Angus Fripp & Charlotte Phillips both juniors who competed in open classes also achieved wins in good company. We wish the SDC Junior members all the best for their upcoming finals.
Thank you to the judges Ros Quist, Mim Poolman & Sharyn Pronay for your attendance & making the day possible. A fantastic day had by all, thank you to all the volunteers and committee for their hard work, as well as the horses and riders for coming along. SDCs next event is July the 26th.
