Oh dearie me! I don't know whether to blame overload, age or a combo of both, but it would appear that I have not managed to post the July dressage class winners to Facebook. So sorry to all these worthy winners for having to wait for your Facebook feature :-(

So in an effort to catch up I am posting all six classes at once. Tag any friends you spot among the winners and join us in congratulating everyone listed, even if it is rather late in the day!

Yesterday Rebecca took most of the day off instructing to take her lovely Lily to the NI Cob Fest at Shanes Castle. Robert thought Casper might like to go to and when they heard that Darcie was wanting to go along to watch, Robert offered her the opportunity to try her hand at showing. It was a great experience for them all and they came home with a very nice collection of rosettes.
