The competition included three equestrian disciplines - dressage, show jumping and a challenging cross country course.

Junior riders competed in the novice level (80cm), and senior riders had option to choose either novice (80cm) or the more advanced open class (one meter).

The juniors novice class saw Karin Lindbom from EEC earn the winning trophy on her talented pony Mer Mer. Second place went to Cyndi Faber from Dubai Polo and Equestrian Club on her ever improving grey gelding Boing. Third place went to Alyssa Ritter from EEC and on the stunning mare La Fillipa owned by Dhwani Soni.

The Senior Novice Class was deservedly won by the Zabeel Riding Barn’s Jo McGowan and the stallion Senator. Second place went to Michelle Woolmer from EEC. Third place deservedly went to Franck Fogarolo riding the young EEC horse Fairytale. Franck Fogarolo also competed in the open class on the EEC gelding Dans Boy. Fogarolo and Dans Boy gave it their all in the cross country round and came out on top as the overall winners.

Next in the placings were Nathalie Homer and her horse Quatro Nevo from Dubai Polo and Equestrian Club.
