The second leg of Hagans Crofts Dressage for All League was held on Saturday 2nd July.

The Intro and Prelim classes proved most popular on the day with some very impressive tests rode by horse and rider.

In the intro class point 33 percent separated first and second placings, with Pam Fox and her horse Bonny Foxy Lady snapping up 1st place with 75.33%, followed by Karen Johnston and Perish the Pack coming second with 75%.

The Prelim class saw Hazel Hilland on Lisbane Butterfly taking home the red ribbon, although hotly pursued by Lynsey Sneddon and Kenny riding into second place.

Once again nominal points separated first and second placings this time in the Novice class where Lisa Erskine and Hannabanana claimed the red ribbon, while Jennifer McCann rode into second place on Oakhill Charm.

Thanks are extended to the judge Stephen Murphy, scribes and stewards. Thanks also to JHd photography for covering the event and to all the competitors and spectators who supported this event.

Thanks also to sponsors Botanica International Ltd who have provided fantastic prizes for the final which is being held on Saturday 23rd July.

To be eligible for prizes in the final week each horse/pony and rider combination must compete in 3 out of the 5 weeks (including the final) and within the same Dressage test.
