“Another sunny day for a SDHC event… the weather gods are with us for sure!

A HUGE thank you to the team behind organising Glebe. We always knew that this could be a fantastic event for SDHC so way back at the Christmas meal when I asked Tabe Annema and Helen Annema Hughes if they would organise the event, on a date picked out of an already busy diary, little did we know just how successful this event would be. Given than Tabe & Helen are strong Showing Competitors, to turn their hand so willingly to a ODE has been an absolute credit to their dedication, attention to detail and what an asset they are to us and to carriage driving. Thank you for flying the flag for us today.

Huge thanks must also go to their dedicated team who put time in before the event and on the day, Davinia Ellis who managed the entries and Secretaries tent today. To Karen & Chris Laing for the course design and being TD for the event. To the army of cheerful and welcoming stewards without whom our sport would struggle. Our Dressage Judges, Sara Simmonds & James Rooney (who stepped in at the last minute so we could accept the large number of entries).

To Jane Robinson for letting us use this incredible and beautiful venue, I’d have driven around just looking at the views if I could…!

Lastly to all of our competitors.. we had a number of very new competitors, a number of inexperienced horses and everyone came home safe and smiling. Thank you!”
