Horse & Hound - - Dressage -

LYNN PAIS­LEY was thrilled to win her first Scot­tish ti­tle with Jura Of Meg­gernie in the pre­lim bronze.

“We were early to go and the stan­dard was high. I watched the tests of the sec­ond and third placed and thought no way can I beat them; their tests looked flaw­less. It was tense watch­ing the score­board as I was so early on,” ad­mit­ted Lynn, who rode the High­land geld­ing to

qual­ify for the Horse of the Year Show at Blair Cas­tle just nine days pre­vi­ously.

“Jura is such a straight­for­ward pony who al­ways tries and never ar­gues. Now it’s all about get­ting ready for

Horse of the Year Show, mostly hack­ing and a cou­ple of trips to the beach to sharpen up his tran­si­tions and work on get­ting him up­hill and his shoul­ders up.”
