Hallowe'en dressage at Bridgwater College
5:00pm Tuesday 13th November 2012 in Bridgwater Area News
Mary Lockyer's horse Charlie won the day's best fancy dress prize for their Harry Potter-themed costumes.
RIDERS at Bridgwater College’s Equestrian Centre held a frightfully enjoyable Halloween-themed dressage morning.
The event – staged at the centre in Cannington – was open to both parents
and children and saw a variety of students and customers dress in all manner of ghoulish attire while attempting a series of dressage tests.
Competitors were given a choice of two difficulty levels to tackle and were able to choose which horse they wanted to ride, some of which were also dressed with themed accessories.
Student Tash Milton, 17, from Taunton, who claimed gold in the second of the day’s heats on board her horse Ross, said: “This was another brilliant customer show. Everyone did very well and the horses all looked very spooky.”
