Amelia and Springwood place 1st!
Amelia Qvist and her lovely Springwood Junior took 1st place in Avenel HT EvA80A, with their highest Dressage score ever at 86.39%, a clear Show Jump round and only 4 penalty points in Cross Country giving them the lowest penalty score at 17.6 only.
This was a great win, as more than half of the competitors were joining the competition with multiple horses (serious riders) and many of them being adults. Look out for Amelia and Junior at Tooradin Horse Trial on 23+24th November.
