Tom McEwen had three of Ros’ horses at Houghton International, and all put in good performances. Lordships Graffalo finished on his 29.6 dressage score for 8th place in the CCI2*-L, No Excuse added just a few time penalties in the CCIO4*-S to take 14th place and Rehy Royal Diamond was clear inside the time around the CCI3*-L but a showjump down on the final day dropped him to 18th, albeit out of over 70 starters.
Georgie Frow took DHI Jura to Shelford Manor where the pair finished on their 33.0 dressage score, 3rd in a BE100Open class.
The following week, Alex Postolowsky rode both Izilot DHI and Lordships Parc Royale at Little Downham. Both picked up third place rosettes, the former in a novice section and the latter at BE100 level.
