NINE Stratford Riding Club members competed in the Area 5 British Riding Club dressage competition at Princethorpe, where Wendy Ellis-Smith rode Viva to second place.
Competitors rode tests from preliminary to elementary and there were a diverse group of horses, from small cobs to big warmbloods.
All Stratford members rode well and supported each other, despite the hot weather and annoying horseflies, with Ellis-Smith’s effort the highlight.
Stratford Riding Club is hosting its Annual Summer Show on Sunday, August 20. The event will take place at Willicote Equestrian Centre, just outside Stratford. Visit www.stratfordridingclub.co.uk for details and regards how to join the club.
