Caroline McQuillan was in top form at The Meadows on Saturday when she picked up the top two placings in the Pre Novice dressage, with just half a percent between Mr Brown and Cavalier Bobby Jo.

Holly Wray also had a good day, taking third and fifth places in the same class, separated only by Holly McClenaghan and Miranda.

Ellen Graham was again victorious in the Intro class finishing just ahead of Jon Champion and Orby who continue their consistent good form. Kathryn McKibbin and Roxy, a regular combination in the line up were third, just ahead of newcomer, Nadine McClelland and Lucey.

Sarah Sproule, campaigning Lyleview On Time, impressed the Judge in the Novice section where she finished top of the leaderboard. Harold Megahey who was making his 2015 competition debut came second on Vanir Helo Duca and third on his European Gold Medal horse, Chuckleberry.

Meantime, it was a very busy day in the showjumping arena where almost 120 jumped the six class heights as well as a number who engaged in the cross country schooling.
