Sunshine for riding club’s combined event

Stranraer & District Riding Club held their August combined training competition in glorious sunshine.

Entries for the dressage were down a little but the overall standard was up for judge Molly Paterson.

The early showjumping classes were busy with strong competition in both horse and pony sections. The course designed by Nadine Scott rode well.

Thank you to everyone who helped on the day – with dressage, showjumping – building course, putting up course and clearing up at the end of a busy day.

The next event is the Annual Charity Horse Show on 4th September with the proceeds shared between Stranraer Happy Hooves RDA and the Club.
