Amanda Sevenson was not born in the saddle, but very nearly.  She has been riding horses since the age of 2.  This show jumping event was her first, at this level.  Amanda got off to am indecisive start, at the first two fences but soon recovered to turn in a very respectable round and clinch third place.

.............. and over the double - no problems

 

 

Not too hot and not cold. A friendly atmosphere made it a fun event for competitors and spectators alike.  There were some good performances, and only one fall - which fortunately was not serious and nobody was hurt - the horse refusing the water jump.
