Winning ways

Class 1 saw Ishbel F, Meadow B, Lucy H and Hannah A fly round the 55cm with three very speedy double clears to take team 1st, Hannah was also second individually and Lucy fifth place.

Class 2 saw Kilgraston White take the trophy, another three brilliant fast clears from Olivia K, Lucy H and Hannah A. Olivia K took individual second place out of nearly 70 riders! Kilgraston Blue – Maisie F, Meadow B, Grace R and Emma G also took fifth place.

Class 3 and another trophy. This time it was Kilgraston Blue – Mischa S, Flora A, Charlotte J and Emma G riding some outstanding jump off turns to take the top spot of 16 teams, with Kilgraston White – Olivia K, Daisy N and Maisie F taking third place.

Class 4 was the last class of the day, the 1m. Connie W, Erin J, Flora A and Mischa S just had a couple of poles down between them, but still managed team third place.

Rachael MacLean, Equestrian Manager at Kilgraston, said: “It was a brilliant day of sport, with some very competitive classes. The girls all rode so well and got the results they deserved, a huge well done to all who took part and to Strathallan for hosting.”
