The first leg of Knockagh View’s Summer dressage league took place recently, and while the weather was temperamental judges Martina McKinley and Ivor Harper enjoyed watching some lovely combinations strut their stuff.

Jill Hobson and her horse Hanne claimed a double by winning both the intro and the prelim classes. Lisa Dundee also had a super day winning Novice class on Tanna and being joint first on Fred in prelim 12 with Rachel Ferris and her racehorse Nanaimo.
