The new Hopetoun Horse Trials welcomed eventers back to its stunning venue over two days of competition.
With classes from 80T to Open Novice, combinations enjoyed fantastic ground and a beautifully turned out cross country over two days of sunshine.
North-east riders enjoyed a handful of wins including an impressive victory from Aberdeen’s Laila Bedawi on board Rainbow Quest II, or Bow, who won their 100 section on 21.5.
Bow is owned by Rebecca and Charlotte Gowing and Laila has the ride while her own pony is off. Hopetoun was the combination’s second event and follows their run at Burgie Horse Trials where they came fourth.
Laila said: “Hopetoun is one of my favourite venues, having successfully competed there on my first pony Sherbet, so I was delighted to see they had added it back into the eventing calendar.
“Bow produced a clear round inside the time to secure the win.”
Shaun Murray led the Open Novice section with a dressage of 26.3 on board eight-year-old mare Wainthropp, while returning from injury for a win in the 90 open section with her chestnut gelding Bloomfield Bordeaux was Victoria Reid who won the section on a score of 33.0.
