Today some of our horses competed in the dressage competition at Solihull Riding Club. Alice rode Coco, Jasmine rode Toby and George rode Apollo. The horses did well in their tests Coco came fourth and Apollo came fifth and both qualified for the championships in April. Toby did very well as it was his first ever test and his score of 61% was very good for his first time.
Tonight we took the Coco Toby and Apollo to Solihull Riding club for the clear round showjumping at Solihull Riding Club. George and Apollo went first and jumped one clear round but knocked one pole off on the second round. Toby went next and jumped very well, especially as it was his first time jumping indoors! He stayed very calm and was not at all spooky although he did not jump clear this time. Coco was last and jumped ver well, he had one refusal on his first round but went more confidently on his second round and jumped clear. Well done all!

The youth opportunities fund supplied money for several memberships to Solihull Riding Club for our young volunteers. This means that we can now use the members field for training the horses and also have reduced costs of classes at the club when we enter. Today Alice, Jemma and Daniella took Apollo, Toby and Coco to the club. They were doing well and were jumping both showjumping and cross country fences confidently.

I am the Chair of the Committee that runs Summerfield Stables. I like helping out with the horses as much as I can but I find it hard to find the time.
