The LFE team had a fantastic time at Barbury International Horse Trials last week.
Ellie Fredericks and Mandorior produced a good dressage test of 30.5 followed by a super-confident clear SJ and XC in the Open Novice to finish a brilliant 4th place behind some top riders, including Olympic riders Tim Price and Austin O'Connor. A super result!
A very big well done to Libby Seed and Zoe Taylor-Jones' Billy Alberto who finished on their dressage score of 27.3 to win their Novice section. It is very rewarding to see our training efforts with this partnership pay off.
Toby Pigott and In Fashion Too got off to a great start in the Novice with a dressage score of 26.5, followed by one pole SJ. In Fashion Too was understandably green at only her third Novice and had a couple of run-outs but finished confident and would have learnt a lot.
Last to go, Ellie Fredericks and Joubert were foot-perfect in the dressage and XC. They had three early casual poles in the very influential SJ course and still finished in the prizes in 6th place.
A wonderful day for the whole team!
