The South West of Scotland Horse Driving Club
The South West of Scotland Horse Driving Club held a very successful driving event at Trotters Animal Farm, Keswick by kind permission of Mr and Mrs Graves. The event field was situated in a beautiful area and the pleasant weather made it a perfect weekend. The event was sponsored by CT Hayton Ltd, Mr and Mrs N Hodgson of Cottage Pies, Carrs Billington, and David and Brenda Hodgson.
The event started in the morning with the dressage and the cone driving. The marathon took the competitors on a trip round the park tracks and they had the added attraction of seeing wallabies, giant bison, Zebras and many other animals as they travelled before returning back to the field to complete the five obstacles.
In the Novice class, David Hume took an early lead after dressage and cones which he maintained by driving a good marathon to win the class ahead of Jen Bernard in second place. Judith Hunt driving her new pony finished in third. Ian McKendrick from Newton Stewart won the Multiples Class and Alison Mullany the Beginners Class. The Field Class had three competitors with victory going to Carol Black driving Tommy followed by Zoe Hodgson and Jackie Griffin.
In a very tight Open class, Drew Douglas from Kirtlebridge driving Jimmy led from start to finish. He had the best dressage test followed by a double clear in the cones and then drove the best marathon of the day to win the class. Pat Gillan from Wigtown driving Tommy also drove a good dressage followed by the only other double clear of the day to lie just 1.6 points behind. She posted some very fast obstacle times but just failed to catch Drew and finish in second place. Zan Kirk was third and Carl Bevan fourth.
The club in its thirtieth year is also running an Anniversary Challenge at each event and Rachel Nelson and Zoe Hodgson were joint winners.
After a vote of thanks, the following prizes were presented:
Open: 1, Drew Douglas; 2 Pat Gillan; 3 Zan Kirk
Novice: 1, David Hume; 2, Jen Bernard; 3, Judith Hunt

Machars Riding Club
Machars Riding Club continued their 2014 season recently at Carty Port. Again there was a super turnout of both junior and senior competitors. Despite the rain that was forecast for the afternoon the event went ahead without a single shower.
Finn McMiken enjoyed his first taste of success off the leadrein in the Priory Vet Centre sponsored Wibbly Wobbly. He returned home with the only double clear to take victory ahead of Georgie Barr and Fudge.
Lucy Gaw and Sam may be a new combination for the 2014 season however they appear to be coming together extremely quickly. From a fast flowing pace, the little black gelding did not miss a turn to take home not one but two red rosettes in both the 55 and 65cm classes, which this season are kindly sponsored by Kevin Ball Farrier and 3B Construction.
Seven competitors came forward for the 75cm Carty Port Equestrian sponsored class. With all combinations going clear in the first round the course builder made the tactical decision to put fences to height and open up the spreads to increase the challenge. This was a decision which was to test competitors to the max with the first fence in the jump-off (the dreaded wavy planks) falling no less than six times. Eventual victors were Becky Dalrymaple with the Forsyth family’s consitent little bay mare Molly, who came home with the fastest four faults some four seconds ahead of Carolyn Fisher and Apache who took a very respectable second place in a competitive class.
Carla Campbell and her speedy dun Brady were on form taking home the red rosette in two of the biggest classes of the day. In the 85cm they were the only double clear with the planks causing all of their fellow competitors to fault. In the 95cm she was one of two double clears and stopped the timer a comfortable six seconds ahead of older sister Iona and Murphy X who took second place.
Iona was not be outdone however and went one better in the 1m 5 pony class, a new addition for the 2014 season. An up to height track with some wide oxers was to see Murphy X return home with the only clear in the first round to take first place with Rachael Baillie and Connie close behind with an unlucky four faults.
The senior classes were well supported and it was nice to see entries up in the 70cm section. Ellen Watkins came home with the only clear on her new ride for 2014 Damien.
Kara Torrance made her trip from Terally worthwhile with a picture perfect clear in the 80cm class which was good enough to take the red rosette.
The two biggest classes of the day the 1m and 1m10 went to Kerrin Forsyth and DJ who returned home with two double clears in competitive times to finish ahead of Leona Wallace and Saffy and Beth MacDonald and Miami Hulabalou.
Machars Riding Club will continue their showjumping league on Saturday the 7th of June 2014 at Carty Port Equestrian.
