Zoe Harrison & Erin GreenwoodWendy Barker with Charlotte & Valegro
Rally Saturday 2nd November 2019
The weather held off today for another lovely rally. Our coaches Marj, Zoe Wendy and Chris T. did a wonderful job teaching our riders about the Theme of Relaxation & Stretching your horses.

For our lecture, we were lucky enough to have Wendy talk about her world class, mid year travels to the UK.

Wendy was judging at the Hartpury Internat’l Festival of Dressage in Gloucestershire. Carl Hester’s yard is very close to Hartpury and members of the Internat’l Dressage Official’s Club (IDOC) were fortunate enough to have a tour of Carl’s beautiful "Oaklebrook Mill" property, and met the wonderful Charlotte Dujardin, Carl and the legend himself, "Valegro".

Wendy went on to judge at some wonderful venues, including the Uberherrn CPEDI, the Bishop Burton CPEDI at the Bishop Burton College and spectated at Aachen in Germany.

Our riders were certainly inspired by the photos and knowledge Wendy shared about such prestigious places within the dressage world – what an eye-opening experience!
