Best of British

ETTRICK Forest Riders Association (EFRA) was well represented at the British Riding Clubs Area 1 Winter Dressage Qualifiers held at Scottish National Equestrian Centre at Oatridge, Broxburn last weekend.

The team – Carly Scott (Selkirk) riding Zelema, Lindsay Dun (Heriot) riding Ruben Aota, Laura Sanderson (Denholm) riding Tamerosa and Jill King (Jedburgh) riding Mylo – scored very highly to win their qualifier, competing among 20 teams from all over the south of Scotland.

The local girls won four classes and were third in another with scores averaging 70 per cent which is high achieving. They were judged by some of the top judges in Scotland, who were complimentary about the standard.

The EFRA team now goes forward to the British Riding Club Winter Championships, which will be held at Hartpury College, Gloucester at the end of March.
