25th September - Performance grading
Furzley Marinaide gained his grade 1 jumping (2ft9") which added to his grade 3 (elementary) dressage from the previous year to give him 'performance status'
Sadly Furzley Mermaide missed out on her grade 1 dressage (prelim) obtaining 62.5% but very few ponies passed this year and I think she was dressage'd out after the previous day! Being only 4yrs we'll try again another year.
