Chatsworth horse trials

During May, me and my daughters went to the Dodson & Horrell horse trials in the beautiful grounds of Chatsworth house. This is my second year of attending and this time we went for the final day which included the event rider masters CIC 4*-S4 Cross Country.

We began in the village browsing the variety of shopping on offer with names such as Joules, Noble Outfitters and House of Tweed along with many more. Obviously one cannot attend such an event without buying a few item which at the time are definitely much needed purchases! There were also two centre showjumping rings in the village to view whilst inbetween shopping.

The afternoon was spent walking round the Cross Country course before watching the event rider masters ride the course and have the final presentation to round of the day. Unfortunately Piggy French decided to withdraw for the cross country. See below for the final three riders:

1 Laura Collett London 52. GBR

2 Tom McEwen Figaro Van het broekxhof. GBR

3 Lucy Jackson Superstition. AUS

Looking forward to visiting Burghley horse trials and Your Horse Live later on in the year.
