Plantation's Spring Event Didn't Disappoint!

Mark and Linda Ledray's Woodstock Wallaby
What an amazing venue to have in our back yard!   Plantation Field hosts national through to international horse trials, the Cheshire Point to Point, multiple fundraising events and is out the back door of the infamous Cheshire Hunt.  The rolling hills of  Plantation is steeped in rich history.

Plantation's spring event didn't disappoint.

We had fabulous weather with beautiful footing for the dressage and cross country.  I rode 8 horses, making it another busy weekend for the team who continually steps up to the plate to bring home great results!

Mary Hazzard's Magic Replica was clear in his 3rd Prelim placing 7th.

Mark and Linda Ledray's Woodstock Wallaby was a stand out all weekend winning the Training division.  

Sherry Stephenson's Pygmalion Prince was faultless in the jumping placing 3rd in the Training.

Ilona English's and Summit Sport Horses had 3 horses, all of whom jumped double clear show jumping and cross country.  Powell won his first novice event and 3rd event on the trot and Grand Traverse had a solid performance placing 7th.  GT is going to step up to Prelim at the next event.

Illiniza had another double clear finishing on her dressage score for 8th place.

Jill Collis' lovely young horse Woodstock Willpower had a great dressage and show jumping round before having an unlucky slip on a turn which resulted in a long walk home.

My own Shannondale Sergio was great placing 2nd to my other ride on Powell in the Novice.  Sergio is a serious horse for the future.

Fair Hill CIC is coming up this weekend.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the event!   ~ Ryan
