Shoalhaven Dressage Club

The Shoalhaven Dressage Club had good entries for their August competition. Unfortunately some of the riders scheduled for starts later in the afternoon were met with a freezing southerly change. The cold wind and rain put off many riders, and the brave few who faced the wild weather had to cope with horses spooked by the rain and wind. It was definitely an advantage to those who rode earlier in the day.

High score of the day went to Kim McDonald and Dadirri Sensei. Kim scored 70.603% in the Official Novice 2.3. Kim and Sensei will be competing in the NSW State Dressage Championships next weekend. Kim will be joined by local riders, Jim Collin, Victoria Davies, Sue Rayner, Alycia Targa, Cathy Chittenden, Fiona Cox, Ebony-Lee Holz, Pamela Bice and Charlotte Phillips. This must be one of the largest contingents ever to represent the Shoalhaven at State level. Good luck to all riders.

Shoalhaven Dressage Club’s next competition will be our Championships on the 29th of October.
