Report on Area 6 Winter Team Dressage Qualifier

After a winter of incessant rain, floods and high winds and gales the Area 6 Winter Team Dressage competition took place at Snowball Farm on Saturday 22 February. There were concerns that parking could prove problematic as all the cars, trailers and lorries have to park on the field, but following a week of slightly better weather the ground had dried out and although there was a tractor on stand-by it was not needed.

We entered a team, but had the misfortune to lose one member due to a major mechanical failure to their transport the previous afternoon and as a result could only field a team of three.

Fortunately the competition is based on the best 3 results. Danni Watt riding Rosgan Quin rode the Preliminary Test and came 7th in her arena. Our other team members were Caroline Geary with Jay Court and Helen Browne with Royal Legacy, who were unable to place so highly.  As a result the team did not get placed, but we were pleased to be able to take part and thanks go to those who competed for us.

It was a long day, the first test being at 8.30 am and the last shortly before 5.00 pm. There were 32 teams plus 4 teams of juniors competing and the host Club High Wycombe were the eventual winners.
