ETTRICK Forest Riders’ Association represented Scotland at the British Riding Clubs Winter Dressage Championships at Hartpury, Gloucester, and came home as champions.
The team of Wendy Bell riding Taktiform, Jill King on Arnie, Rhona Young with Quin Kannan and Laura Sanderson on Andy’s Law all performed personal bests to finish ahead of 26 other teams from all over Britain.
The girls had worked consistently since the snow went and truly deserved this win.
The club has won the Summer Dressage Championships and the Team of Four dressage Championships for the past two years, and in 2009 were awarded a beautiful trophy as the most successful club in Britain.
Some of these riders and horses were part of that successful year.
Much of their success is due to the continual and correct training from Fiona Busby and Anne Millar, who have coached the club teams for many years and their formula for success has been instrumental in bringing about this fantastic result.
