Local rider Wendy Dunham produced an excellent performance yesterday on her horse Cruise at the Hackthorn Hall Burton Pony Club one day event when she achieved fifth place in a field of 20 competitors.
One mistake in the Dressage and one pole down in the Show Jumping preceded a magnificent clear in the Cross Country on a course described as ‘spooky’ because it involved going into and out of dark and light areas.
Yesterday marked the end of the eventing season for Wendy but she will compete in the winter Dressage League which starts next weekend at Elm’s Farm.
Wendy said: “I was really pleased with the performance yesterday. It was a good note to end on.
“I am looking forward to next season already!”
