Camilla Hardie Update

Camilla Hardie entered into her local Ride for Research Dressage League event last week. Find out how she got on with Bailey and Dougal…

“So this week we were entered in the first in the series of dressage competitions at Ashwoods for Ride for Research, a series jointly sponsored by our own Global Herbs. I braved up all in the name of charity and, after 30 years of dressage riding, entered my first Elementary test. I then rummaged about for all the pink stuff I could find!

Sadly, Sunday came and it was absolutely freezing. Freezing snowy rain combined with wind, meaning both horses were suffering with a chilly wind under their tails! Bailey was first, in the Prelim. I only entered 2 tests as I didn’t think I could learn any more (thankfully this was a good choice due to the weather!). Bailey did a good test, if a bit stiff due to the weather. We trotted up the centre line and I couldn’t feel my face I was so cold! He ended on 72% for 4th place, and got a nice 8 for his final halt which was lovely and square.

Next up was Dougal, who was like a horse possessed as he was obsessing over his mate back on the lorry. It actually did us a favour as it certainly perked up the test! He did a super test which was really accurate and fun to ride, for 70% and 2nd place. We look forward to doing some more in the series. Hopefully in better weather!”

The Ride for Research Dressage League is sponsored and supported by Global Herbs, HayGrazer and Garratt Horsebox Hire.
