Spring arriving heralds the conclusion of the dressage and show jumping leagues at West Kype Riders Club. The dressage league result was the first to be awarded following monthly competitions from last August. It was a closely fought battle between mother and daughter, Jennifer Broadhurst and her Elementary horse Aska and daughter Hannah Broadhurst with her home produced Connemara pony Sir Spike. It all came down to the wire and was decided at the very last competition with Hannah edging her mother Jennifer into second place. Hannah has enjoyed great success in Dressage and Eventing with Spike and is looking forward to a very exciting season.
The show jumping league ran every second Thursday from the beginning of October and has enjoyed some fantastic competitions during the season and again two of the sections were decided on the final night. The league winners in the different sections were;
