The winners were crowned at the final of Hagans Croft’s Spring Dressage for All league on Saturday 26th March.

Despite the wet weather, competitors’ spirits were not dampened and some fantastic tests were ridden in front of judge Stephen Murphy.

Two of the classes consisted of two new tests from British Dressage, Intro C, 2016 and Prelim 2, 2016.

Competitors rode these tests in week two of the league and therefore enjoyed the challenge of trying to improve their score within the final.
