Dressage

Everyone at Ravelrig will be cheering for Dianne Allan, one of our Monday night riders who is competing in the RDA National Championships down in Hartpury in Gloucestshire.  The event is running from Friday 13th July until Sunday 15th July and Dianne’s event is on the Saturday.

We all wish her the best of luck on the day, we know she will have an amazing time.

We also want to thank Borders RDA group for allowing Dianne to ride one of their wonderful horses, Domino at the event.

Good Luck and looking forward to hearing all about it!

Dressage

Well Done to everyone who took part in the Edinburgh and Borders RDA Region Dressage Qualifiers at the weekend.  The event took place in the Scottish National Equestrian Centre and Tonto went along with three of our riders strut their stuff.

Our riders did Ravelrig proud and with three 1st positions and one 3rd.  We were overjoyed with everyone’s hard work.

The prize winners were

Calum Leather, in the senior group, Finlay Burnside and Reann Hornby in the Junior group.

Alisha Dickson was another winner in the Arts and Craft section for her wonderful model of Buddie and her.

And not to be left out Tonto who Calum, Finlay and Reann all rode won for best Condition and Turnout.

Well Done Everyone!
