Summer Show Jumping Competition

On Sunday 31st August Greatham Equestrian Centre held a Show Jumping competition. We decided to run this event as close to a proper show as possible to give our riding school clients a feel as to what it would be like to enter a real show.

We decided to have 6 classes to suit all abilities from lead rein classes to open for the more experience riders, a pairs class for everyone and Top Score for those who like a challenge! A schedule was produced, competition numbers bought and clients were asked to complete the entry from and send it to the Show Secretary.

The weather was perfect. Once again the yard was full of children preparing their horses/ponies for competition. Horses/ponies were washed, groomed and plaited to perfection.

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to our riding school clients for making such a huge effort on the day. Every single rider looked so very smart and you made the horses/ponies look incredibly smart too!
