                                              Continuing their successful year in
                                              Dressage to Music competitions, Annabel
                                              and Berberys Blaze took the ultimate
                                              British Riding Club title when they
                                              became Junior Dressage to Music National
                                              Champions on Saturday 6th October. The
                                              event was held at Addington Manor,
                                              Buckinghamshire in the stunningly
                                              refurbished indoor school. Competitors
                                              from across the country had won their
                                              Area Music Competition to take part in
                                              this Championship - aimed at riders under
                                              17 years which means some of the older
                                              ones are riding 16hh horses! With Bertie
                                              standing only 12.2hh he was the smallest
                                              pony by far and Annabel at 11 years of age
                                              the youngest rider. But this did not deter
                                              them! Using their signature piece of ‘Let
me be your Teddy Bear’ which suits Bertie’s cheeky character and expressive trot as well
as the rather apt change of walk music to Queen’s ‘We are the Champions’ they produced
a superb test gaining 76% and some very positive comments from judges Lady Inchcape
and Donald Kear.
