RDS Combined Training Results

Congratulations to those who competed in the Combined Training at the Dublin Horse Show last week; they were all winners, having won the Open or Intermediate Combined Training at their Area Qualifiers in order to qualify for the RDS competition. 

In the dressage phase, the scores were mixed with some very good scores, but the judge commented that many of the horses were understandably tense. 

The Show Jumping judges were impressed with the standard, with five clear rounds in the Members (Open) class, though only two jumped clear in the Intermediate class, perhaps because the Puissance was going on in the Main Arena at the same time! 

It was an exciting and unforgettable experience for all who took part!
