Undoubtedly the two new outdoor all-weather Equestrian Surfaces rings outside made a huge difference.

“Positive feedback from competitors has exceeded all expectations, particularly about the new surfaces,” said Scope director Jimmy Maguire.

Partners Louise Saywell and Graham Lovegrove were among two of the most enthusiastic riders. “This has been the best Scope ever,” said Graham.

“It’s great to have another international show in this country. The show combines horses and ponies and there is always a great atmosphere. This has been a spectacular week and the organisers have done a really great job.”
