Dressage is another riding discipline you may develop at Lucton, where we have an Olympic size 60 x 40 metre arena.
Harriet representing England Dressage
Once again, Harriet Brick and Spot Awole (Nemo) have had an extremely successful year. Her season started on an all time high in October when they attended the Great British Pony Viewing Day, where GB selectors seek out two squads - Progress and Prime - of dressage ponies from across Great Britain. Harriet was delighted to be selected to ride on the Progress Squad, and enjoyed training over the winter months with the selectors and trainers, as well as continuing her regional qualifications for the second year, qualifying for the PetPlan National Championships at both Novice and Elementary level, as well as narrowly missing out on National qualifications at both levels in dressage to music. She also represented Lucton School for the fourth year at the National School Equestrian Association Championships at Addington Manor in November. Harriet came 7th at Elementary level.
Harriet's training with the GB squad has also led her to make her debut at FEI level in 2017. Harriet and Nemo have competed at several Premier Leagues, gaining top 10 placings at the majority. She has also qualified for the PetPlan Semi-Finals for another year at Medium level which, if she wins, will qualify her for the Nationals once again in April.
The highlight of Harriet and Nemo's season was definitely being selected to represent England at Home Internationals at Rockrose Equestrian Centre, Scotland in July. Since she started riding dressage five years ago, her goal has always been to represent England, and is thoroughly looking forward to the experience!
