Dressage, July, 2006

The "re-run" after "Dressage on Cata", to give riders more chance to practise. The tests had been handed out a week before the event, and for the next seven days, back gardens were filled with kids (and adults) "troting" round scaled down versions of the arena so that, on the day, most riders and leaders knew where they were to go and at what pace.

 

Several were led. Kate must have been worn out, and not all ponies were keen on the idea!

 

The rest walked ..... trotted ...... cantered ......

 

.... Or just watched and waited.
