|Area 6 and L&SE Dressage to Music Qualifier, BCA, Saturday 17 June 2017 - (Published 19 June 2017)|
The club entered three combinations who, despite the heat, thoroughly enjoyed an extremely well run and increasingly popular competition. Liz Rollinson on Dassett Legal Edge and Tamsin Morris with Cullawn My Way rode in the Novice BD points section. First timer, Tamsin riding to Queen tracks, came third (in L&SE too) as did experienced DTM combination Antonia Thoday and Danesbrook Jubilee Flyby in the Novice 0 Points section. Antonia also came fourth in the L&SE Senior Qualifier.
Well done the three of you!
|BRC Area 6 Summer Dressage, Henley Showground, Sunday 11 June 2017 - (Published 12 June 2017)|
We were blessed with a glorious sunny day and very good going. Excellent result for OBHRC – our Senior Open Dressage Team came second with eight points, only pipped by WBRC with seven points. The team consisted of one Elementary test –Tamsin Morris and Cullawn My Way who came first – and three different Novice tests – Antonia Thoday riding Danesbrook Flyby Jublilee who came third; Sally Mawer riding Chester with fourth placing in the team competition and Anna Streeter on Gurraun Seagram borrowed from Anka Taylor with 6th placing in the team competition. Tamsin also rode a Prelim test on The Footsy as an individual. He did his best ever test so she is delighted. Jillian Luff also rode as an individual at Novice. Big thank you to SORC for running such a well organised event, to Nicky Waters for all the admin in advance, to our team helper, George Luff and to Liz O'Donnell for her support on the day. Well done team.

|Nikki and Liz at Area 6 Horse Trials qualifier, Snowball Farm, Sunday 28 May 2017 - (Published 29 May 2017)|
Sadly we had no teams entered. But Nikki Allen, riding Bannagh Eclipse (Dennis) and Liz Rollinson riding Dassett Legal Edge (Splash) were the club's sole representatives at this year's Area 6 Horse Trials qualifier riding as individuals. Dennis did his best ever dressage test only carrying forward 24.75 penalties and Liz jumped one of only four double clears with no time penalties so finishing seventh on her dressage score. Well done both of you.

Well done to Marion Wallbridge and Nicholas Nickelby and Sally Mawer and Chester for qualifying for the Championship. Marion came fifth in N30. Sally's horse Chester was randomly drug tested, so be aware it does happen!
|OBHRC Open Showing Show, 14 April 2017, Johns Lane Farm - (Published 15 April 2017)|
Once again our new club field got a thumbs up from both judges and competitors. Lovely big arenas and an excellent grass cover. This to the extent that some of the Handy Pony tasks were hard to see in the long grass!
Thank you to our lovely judges, Pat Blake and Jan Eedle-Wells, and to all the people who helped.
