Summer Dressage League

And so another successful Summer Dressage League concludes at Laurel View. Unusually we had quite a lot of sunny days during this Summer League, but the competitive atmosphere was always warm and encouraging, no matter whether the big yellow globe in the sky was visible or not. Massive thanks to all the competitors and their teams for their support throughout the league. Also we are indebted to the many judges and scribes that have lent their time and expertise so willingly. Not forgetting all the team at Laurel View that prepare for and then run show days, you are all superstars.

Put your hands together for the worthy league winners listed below and apologies that I was too tired to post these last night.
