ZOE SOPP will be running her first “Colgate Dressage” affiliated dressage competition on 20 May at Priory Equestrian Centre, Frensham, Surrey, GU10 3DP. Speaking to Out and About, Zoe commented: “I have been very lucky to be able to step into Duncan Whitney-Groom’s shoes and I want to carry on from where he left off because he ran such good shows where there was always a lovely atmosphere.

“Wearing a show organiser’s hat is a new experience for me but having already run some unaffiliated days, I’ve found that I love it because I love people and I love horses”

“My aim is to make people feel welcome whether they are first-timers doing a Prelim up to people who are hunting qualifying points at PSG and Inter I. I also plan to run advanced/FEI pyo classes. But whatever tests riders will be doing I want to provide them and their horses with a relaxed atmosphere where they can enjoy a good day out.”

The schedule for 20 May can be found in the British Dressage show listings, under the name Colgate Dressage. Cost of entries is £20 up to advanced medium, and £25 above.

Classes also welcome unaffiliated riders at £5 less per entry

Zoe will be using the My Show Secretary software that her researches found to be the one most people prefer.

To enter email zoe.sopp@btinternet.com. (Times: two days before, tel 07824 366302.) Future Colgate Dressage dates at Priory are: 16 June, 15 July, 5 August, 16 September, 14 October and 18 November.
