LILLIESLEAF Primary School equestrian team travelled to Gleneagles at the weekend and managed to come home with a hat trick of impressive wins.

The team of Daisy Job on Copshawholm Autumn Cloud, Eryn Douglas on Joyton Gingernut, Mary Douglas on Sparky McDuff and Abbie Forster on Jonny (pictured from left to right) pulled off outstanding performances against very tough opposition from both public and private schools across the country to be crowned dressage, show jumping and combined training team champions.

The girls combined some very impressive dressage scores with double clears in the Show Jumping to ensure no further points were added to their overall team score. They also added to their credit some impressive individual results with Eryn and Mary gaining an overall first and second in the show jumping respectively and Abbie and Daisy gaining second and third position in their dressage arenas.
