MHC Challenge 2022

Supported by Milan Veterinary Practice

Manx Horse Council Dressage Challenge 2022

Organised by Kennaa Riding Club

23rd April 2022

Supported by Milan Veterinary Ltd

The home team of Kennaa Riding Club followed up on their recent success in Arena Eventing by winning the Team Dressage Challenge held at Kennaa on Saturday April 23rd.

A sunny but blustery day saw 6 teams coming before judge Jane Atree to contest the MHC Dressage Challenge. There were some very nice performances in both the short and long arenas and it was good to see younger members on their ponies taking up the challenge.

The Kennaa team of James Mister on Graigueaverne Forester, Stephanie Byers on Abbeyfield Cailin, Jess Collister on Roosevelt and Lola-Bea Bryce riding Eragon Von Der Held dominated both the team and individual competitions with the top 4 scores of the day totalling 278.08%. The minor placings were evenly contested with the Chasers team “Shaken but not Spurred” second, edging out Conrhenny EC by less than 3% who finished third. West Coat RC were fourth, Baldrine Stables fifth and Pony Club sixth.

The individual winner was last year’s champion James Mister who produced a fine test on Graigueaverne Forester with a score of 74.31% ahead of team-mate Lola-Bea Bryce on Eragon Von Der Held, 68.97%.

Many thanks to all at Kennaa EC for organising the day and to Jane Atree for judging the tests. The MHC is very grateful to Milan Veterinary Ltd for sponsoring the Member’s Team Challenge series and to Country Warehouse for helping with the prizes.

The next round of the team challenges will be on May 2nd when West Coast RC will be hosting the Mounted Games, which is always great fun.
