North Midlands Regional Dressage & Showjumping Qualifiers 2019

Friday 26th April 2019


What a successful day on Friday 26th of April at Scropton RDA Centre for the Regional Qualifiers in both Dressage and Showjumping. We had various groups coming from across the North Midlands for the day. We were also joined by Claire Pope and Moria Richardson to judge both qualifiers as well as the photographer Danielle Longotano Rain.

We saw some fantastic riding from our competitors during our Dressage classes, all of their horses turned out so beautifully well. It was fantastic to see group volunteers supporting each participants whilst they are in action. The weather was not too bad across Scropton during the day until the Showjumping Qualifiers where few of our show jumpers braced the course when the rain has begin but it was really enjoyable day for everyone who attended our regional qualifiers.



     Thank you to Matthew Dalley, Maria Holdaway, Moria Richardson and Claire Pope being part of the presentation to give our fantastic Riding for the Disabled’s 50th Year rosettes to all of competitors throughout the day. 



Congratulations to those competitors who are heading to RDA National Championships by securing their qualification. Very huge well done to all of our riders who has taken part and doing their best on Friday.


Here is the statement by joint organisers, Karen Thompson & Glynis Dalley:

“Delighted to see six groups from four counties represented at the Dressage qualifiers. The standard of riding and turnout improves every year and North Midlands RDA will be well represented at Hartpury. Good luck to everyone over the coming months in their preparation for the Nationals" said Karen Thompson from Kesteven RDA

"It was great to welcome so many riders from across the region to Scropton RDA. It’s always hard work hosting a regional qualifier, but very rewarding when you see how much everyone gets out of being part of a day like this” said Glynis Dalley from Scropton RDA
