Lime Kiln Farm held its first British Dressage show on Saturday, and with 30 tests being ridden from Prelim to Advanced Medium there was plenty to keep judge Rachel Hillier busy.
Judith Johnson and her own Gentle Guy were the first competitors into the ring and at their first affiliated show achieved a creditable third in Prelim 12, behind Sam Sutton, aboard Relevant, and winner Shelley Harwood and Balleyrose Rose.
Barley and Judith Barker were an impressive combination, winning Prelim 14 with 76.25pc and Novice 24 with 75.76pc.
Claire Kinsley and her Highland, Rignell Auchentoshan were Elementary 42 winners, with Alison Bailey and Highwell Rimsky taking top spot in Elementary 49.
The final class of the day, Advanced Medium 90 was won by Ruth Harris and Crackenthorpe Daytona.
On Sunday it was the turn of the unaffiliated dressage riders. Helen Fuller and Charlie Brown kicked off the day with a win in LKF intro 2, ahead of Claire Birch and Templewood Isis. Helen went on to take second in Intro B, behind Alison Lee and her Belgium-bred mare Hampidoe Van De Brouweshoeve. Bought to showjump, this was only the mare's second dressage show to gain experience. She then went on to win Prelim 12, ahead of Lindsey Wright and Florence, who were also Prelim 4 winners.
Anne Cowley and Fenmarch Bess took home the red in Novice 28, and super-consistent partnership Jessica Lawrence and Wolfie were Novice 30 and Elementary 44 victors.
