Show Report

Mount Mascal celebrated Christmas in style this year with a dressage competition on the 27th December, where the riders and horses were cleverly disguised as Santa Claus, snowmen, angels, Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus, and of course the donkey!  Great fun was had by all, except perhaps by one of our snowmen whose pony’s heart simply froze at the sight of such strange things, plopping his snowman on the floor!  His place had to be taken by that very bravest of ponies Margo, who simply took it all in her stride.

The first class Introductory A saw some new riders having a go and was won by first timer May Mundt-Leach riding Grey Jack.  May had taken the opportunity to learn the secrets of dressage by having a private lesson during the week, and she clearly took it all in and rode a good accurate test.  Well done May!  Fancy dress was not compulsory in this class but we spotted a rather jolly Santa amongst the entries who looked remarkably like Ollie Jerreat, and who rode Ludo into 3rd place.  Had he been practising on his reindeer?

The pairs class brought forth some laughs but also some well ridden tests.  The most outstanding being Charlotte Maddison on Dezzert and Sian Goldfinch on Galaxy.  Before going on to win the class they made a grand entrance doubled up on Dezzert (cleverly disguised as a donkey with HUGE ears) riding bareback and dressed as Joseph, Mary and cradling baby Jesus.  Fortunately they did not have a real baby!
With such turnout they also won the best fancy dress award for the day.  Thank you to all those mums and dads who assisted with the making of the costumes.

The one disappointment of the day was that we only had one entry for the dressage to music class.  There had been requests for this class to be put on, but some entries had withdrawn at the last minute.  So Maria Ayiotis and Bluebell were left unchallenged.  She made a very good effort and had obviously spent time on producing a tape as well as her fancy dress.  So well done Maria, it was very entertaining!  Perhaps we will try it again, but only if there is enough interest.

The last class Preliminary 18 provided some promising tests and was won by Beth Fisher riding Penthill Braveheart a pony that she has only recently started to share, but they clearly make a good partnership.  In a close 2nd place was Imogen Kimberley riding her own Casper – a nice young pony with much more to give.

All in all an excellent and fun day, and those of you who didn’t manage to enter really missed out.  We would especially like to see more ‘non owners’ having a go on some of our very good riding school ponies – after all, dressage is only putting together the things you learn in your lessons!  In the meantime, have a very happy New Year!
