Hundleby Equestrian Centre gegan their Summer League Dressage recently and riders achieved some fantastic results.

Throughout the summer, dressage and show jumping competitions will take place at the centre fortnightly, with points allocated to those placed first to sixth.

A trophy is awarded to the rider with the highest points overall, for both dressage and show jumping at a barbecue and presentation evening.

Riders will each gain 10 points simply for entering, to make the competitions fair.

Riders are given slots of 15 minutes where they are invited to spend 10 minutes working through any difficulties they are having.

After the 10 minutes they are then asked to start their test in their own time.

With 11 riders entered, varying from youngsters to adults, the judges had some tough decisions to make.

However, it was Katie Jarvis-Grove that pipped the others to the post, riding her loan horse Khalisa.

Megan Gale, 15, from Hundleby, riding her pony Jenny, followed closely behind to come second.

Korimay Rae, 13, from Skegness, riding a riding school pony Sara then followed in third place.

A special mention goes to Libby Corssen, 10, of Burgh le Marsh, who did a fantastic test without a leader for the first time.
