Chilly Dressage at Taupo

Taupo can be a cold place on occasion and it certainly was for the dressage on Saturday!

While the sun may have been shining, the bitterly cold and very strong wind proved
difficult for horses, riders and organisers during the dressage at Taupo. The arenas went flying at times, even to the point where, after the first tests, two of them had to be shifted to a calmer place!

Well done to everyone for persevering and getting out there competing. Check out our gallery from Jan Sutherland of Take the Moment Photography, after the results.
