The team had a busy day at Aston with five novice horses.

Guy and Sharon Monk’s KEC Malties Trend continued to impress with a good dressage followed by one down and a steady cross country, while Valentin Tourres’ finished sixth on her dressage score of 30.3 and a double clear.

Jo Preston-Hunt’s Elixir put in another double clear to finish just outside the top ten and Sophie Butcher’s Mickleholme Diavata was excellent in his first novice finishing fourth on his dressage score of 30.8.

Finally, Louise Burton’s Balladeer Mr T was much improved doing a good dressage, two down and a good cross country.

Onwards to Burgham with the advanced horses.
