Bumper day for dressage



THE threat of rain didn't deter equestrians from the Northern Rivers and South East Queensland on converging on the Murwillumbah Showgrounds for the Cliff Cartwright Memorial Equestrian Day on Sunday.

The day was one of the most successful the group has held and the cooler conditions suited both riders and their mounts.

Among the judges was Australian Athens Olym- pian Ricky MacMillian who rode in the individual dressage event.

The supreme rider of the show went to Dulgaigan's Di Baxter on Miramar Tejsvi, the supreme led exhibit went to Gabrielle Jones of Tallebudgera with Wyella Hannhause and the supreme ridden hack went to Olivia Cillekens from the Gold Coast with Heldon Park Pennywise.

Cillekens also won the intermediate rider and open galloway sections.

Other equestrians included champion novice pony and champion open pony to Bridgett Chambers from the Gold Coast, novice galloway champion to Aleida Ross of Piggabeen on Uptown Last Star, champion open hack to Di Baxter with champion novice hack to Alisha Fielmich on Valentine Park Law and Order while the junior ridden champion went to Jazna Kent from Piggabeen on Beau Park Charm, and open to Di Baxter.
