RIDERS taking part in the Baileys Horse Feeds Flexi Eventing series at The Meadows Equestrian Centre have shown great resolve to compete in some harsh weather conditions over the past three weeks. Their commitment has been matched by that of the many volunteers needed to keep the action flowing smoothly throughout the three phases.

Among those who braved the elements last Saturday was Ella Boyle who rode three of the seven entries in the Intermediate class, winning on the Westphalian mare Candy 737 (70.5). She was fifth with WKD Cooley (62.5) and placed last with Grafenstolz Distinction (56.4), both of whom were “feeling spring in the air” according to the rider whose mother, Amanda, owns the trio.
