[Equihunter] Saturday was somewhat how we like to remember English summers to be, warm, dry, a slight breeze and just a light dusting of cotton wool clouds in the sky above.

To make a good day a perfect one, our sponsored rider Libby Newman scored a first place in the British Showjumping Discovery Class.

We took the relatively short drive from the Felbridge Show Ground towards Brighton and set off in glorious dry and warm conditions. The traffic was kind too.

The Royal Leisure Centre is located in part of the South Downs National Park, with stunning views of the Sussex countryside. Look to the south of the outdoor arena, towards the rolling chalk hills of the Downs and you could clearly see the myriad of Para-gliders circling in the warm thermals above the famous Devil’s Dyke.

It was a a busy day with a very full schedule and The Royal Leisure Centre attracted a good attendance.

Well done to all those who were there on the day and a special mention to all those that were placed.
