"Unicorn Waterfall" June Dressage Results 2023!

What a fab event we had again for the unicorns this year! For those that dressed up, so much amazing effort went in to your outfits, they were all just fab!


Our Unicorn tests feature a softly flowing 'waterfall' over pole 'bridges' - the serpentine is a fabulous school movement for kids to ride, and the use of poles in our tests help guide them to create correct and even loops right from the start. We hope you enjoyed riding them!

"Unicorn Waterfall" Dressage Results - Yellow-Plus!


One of our consistently most popular classes, the walk-trot Yellow-Plus level is where riders really start to get established in their abilities to produce a good test. It's often the level we see riders stay at the longest while they consolidate what they know across all the different movements we offer in our themed tests over the year! Riders in the top placings in this class have usually diligently worked their way up our levels and are beginning to have a good understanding of what the judge wants to see!

1st - Charlie and Pepper-corn - 73.1%

2nd - Emily and Chester - 72.6%

3rd - Ellie and Jay - 69.5%

A big thank you to Carly at Pony Passion for once again supporting the Best Unicorn rosettes. The Pony Passion 'Glitz and Glam' range are particularly suited to all Unicorn Wannabes, but there is a whole range of lovely clothing for both girls and boys as ewll as quality pony wear, so do check them out.


The Pony Passion Supreme Unicorn was chosen by Carly - and she chose Charlie and Pepper!

Carly said - I'm going to pick Charlie and Pepper! I think most boys would have declined to dress up for unicorn month so good for him on doing his own take on it And I love his Parrot outfit!

She was right - this year Charlie was the only boy to dress up. Which was a shame, as in previous years we’ve had fantastic takes on the unicorn theme from the boys - including a Pegasus, and a jousting knight!

So I am issuing a (very early ) challenge to the boys for next year… let’s see what you’ve got..! ;)


Meanwhile, congratulations to Charlie and Pepper - and indeed to all of you who dressed up, it was very clear a *lot* of effort had gone into your decorations and outfits, particularly those of you who *didn’t* have greys (there’s a thing, the greys are easier for unicorning at least )!





Our next event is the Summer Ice Creams - fabulous shapes in these tests! Check them out on our Current Event page here: Current Event


The rosettes are one of my favourites too, beautiful pastel colours with a cool ice cream print. You definitely want to enter just to get hold of one of these!


Demi Dressage Summer Ice Cream rosettes and sweets

The closing date for the Summer Ice Creams is Sunday 30th July 2023 - we hope to see lots of you taking part!
