|On a freezing day in late January with driving snow at Forrest Edge Equestrian Centre near Swaffham, the younger team of Woodbridge riders excelled to win the NSEA Country Dressage Championship Qualifier from King’s Ely School by just 0.064 of a mark!
Led ably by top scorer Sasha Reid (9 yrs) on Harry, the team of Sasha, Perdi Ludgrove (12), Alex Ryder-Davies (13) and Lily Waterer (12) were duly crowned the NSEA Suffolk Champions.
They now join two jumping teams from Woodbridge who qualified late last year to go to the NSEA County Championships at Bury Farm International Arena in Bedfordshire on 20th April 2018.
The other team of Tabby Wilson-Smith, Oliver Reid, Olivia Brown and Ada Marson were fourth, still only 1.282 marks behind their team mates.
A few of the riders competed in the warm-up class with good results: Sasha won, just ahead of her brother Oliver Reid in third and Ada Marson in sixth.
Many congratulations to all the riders on their successes under such testing conditions.
