         I would like to say thank you to the Spackman Trust for their grant towards my dressage lessons with my horse Kayentai.    Both Kayentai and I have benefitted tremendously from these extra lessons and I have moved up a level in competition dressage.  I have recently represented the Juniors of Swindon and District Riding Club at some events and, in my first dressage at the higher level, I came third.  I am really enjoying my riding and hope to get better and better.
