Melody at Dauntsey

Melody at Dauntsey

It’s been a busy month with eventing, the Almondsbury Show and my dressage clinic at Burrows Court.

On the eventing front, Melody is now established at Novice level with clear rounds at Chepstow, Upton and Dauntsey (where she finished 7th).  Hector and Xavier have had clear rounds at Upton and Burgham.  Burgham proved a happy hunting ground as both Xavier and Pearl were entered in the CIC**.  This was Hector and Xavier’s first CIC** and they gained some valuable experience.  Pearl, fresh for her advanced outing at Aston le Walls, was the star of the day in coming 7th.

Almondsbury Show was as popular as ever.  We had glorious sunshine and for the first time this year, there was an overall showing champion and reserve champion in addition to the dressage cup.  The classes proved even more popular this year so it was a hard decision to choose our champions.  Thanks to all who came, whether it be judges, stewards, helpers and competitors.
