Howard Guard, owner of Netherwylde Equestrian, a purpose-built livery yard near Radlett (Herts) and Judaico.
What a fab day at the College Equestrian Centre, Keysoe. Three combinations from Netherwylde headed to Bedfordshire for a day of some serious competition but also great company, sunshine and fun: Clare Foster & Santos W, Edward Johnson & Arrow and Regula Stricker & Ollie.
Edward and Arrow scored 71.41% and came fourth in the Elementary Open, only just missing out on a direct qualification. Doesn’t really matter as they later picked up a wild card. A solid test resulted in 68.29% and a very good fifth place in the Medium Open. Ollie out-did himself on only his 6th ever Medium (R.) competing at the regionals and won the class with 68.78%. He is just getting better all the time, having also picked up a wild card for coming fifth in the Elementary Open (70.78%). A huge ‘thank you’ to his groom Norbert, trainer Edward and Sam!
