AWHA Victorian Branch Gala Day
Werribee Park Equestrian Centre
Sunday 16th March 2003

Page 5  - Dressage Highlights - Part 1
by Berni Saunders

AWHA Vic Branch Committee did a great job to run such a comprehensive program AND 5 rings of dressage.  Fortunately they have some very knowledgeable people on board and it was a great day - particularly for giving a young horse an outing, or going up a grade and taking the opportunity for a quiet day with a nice atmosphere.

There were some very good test ridden - I though that Renee Pedretti riding Northern Regency was a stand out.  She looked completely in control and it certainly deserved to win the medium class - which she did.

Above - Renee Pedretti and Northern Regency.  'Reg' as he is known to his friends ... is usually ridden by his diminutive rider Maureen Barrell who always enjoys her time with the horse.

Torlea Electronic by Wunder (dec'd) from Electra was ridden by Amber Evans.   Amber and her husband Ollie share the horse.  Ollie jumps him and Amber trains him in his Dressage.  Amber confessed that she was looking to see him become more concentrated on his dressage. Electronic has a very tractable nature and did a very nice Novice test in this ring.

Belcam Carrington is always a favouriteof mine - he is a very upstanding horse ... in my opinion this is an ideal type of conformation and posture for dressage!   He is owned and ridden by Kerry Sisely
