The Royal International Horse Show July 2011

Kathy competed in the Side Saddle concours d'elegance (historical costume) class
at the Royal International Horse Show (Hickstead)
0n 31st July 2011

Kathy has been competing at Hickstead, in various events, for about 14 years, but has never managed
 to qualify for a final in the main International Arena.
At last this year - ambition achieved!
She was called forward out of 24 competitors in the preliminary judging for the final
and achieved 8th place
We are delighted!
Ace went superb, and didn't they both look smashing?

Waiting in the collecting arena for the Final

that's me - and Lauren who came along as our (superb) groom

and into the main arena...
