The high winds and wet weather didn’t dampen the action at the 2018 British Dressage National Championships.
A little different this year not riding there but great to go as trainer, groom, support and general bag carrier, great to catch up and spend the 3 days with so many lovely people.
So proud of how everyone rode and performed. Amber Young rode such a professional test aboard the beautiful Ruby De La Cruz at their first Nationals for an incredible 4th place finish. What a great result and so well deserved. Ben Franklin Dressage finished on a fantastic 12th place in the Elementary aboard the stunning and elegan, De Angelis in not the easiest of conditions. Last but not least Mari Durward-Akhurst Para Dressage and the true gent, Sky O’Hara brought the crown home…NATIONAL CHAMPION!!!!!! She rode into that windy arena and retained her title from last year, just incredible!!!
It was lovely to see not only RWD clients were doing well but also horses that we have trained, Charlotte Cundall won her National title aboard the lovely BamBam whom Rob trained from Novice to International Small Tour.
