Northern Winter Final: Laura Fry takes tally to four

Laura Fry repeated her double victory from the North-West Winter Regionals by scooping another two classes at the Northern Winter Regional Championship, Willerby Hill Farm, North Yorks 23 – 26 Feb 2010. Partnered by Julie Langlands’ Riviera L, an eight-year-old British-bred gelding by Royal Geneve, she won the elementary and medium open music freestyles with scores of 74.17% and 73.54% respectively.

“Riviera belongs to my friend Julie who is the affiliated show secretary at Fry’s,” said Laura.” She bought him from the MKM Sporthorse Stud in Aberdeenshire with a view to an affordable but promising youngster. Julie backed and started him off but he grew very big which is why she gave the ride to me. He’s still maturing but is showing lots of potential.”

“We put huge time and effort into the choreography and finding the right music. We used strong, very powerful, well known music from TV ads. It suits him so well and I love riding to it,” said Laura. “He’s also at the stage now where I can really ride him to it.”

Other riders from Fry’s enjoyed a successful show too: “My daughter Charlotte was hot on my heels in second,” said Laura “and she was also second in the advanced medium freestyle, a class which was won by Jenny Rose. Jenny’s a working pupil at Fry’s and we were thrilled that she did so well.”

The show saw Para dressage riders on good form amongst their able-bodied counterparts. Alex McNamara, 19, who is a grade II rider came eighth in the elementary restricted with Corinne McNamara’s Cappelano and grade IV European gold medalist Sophie Wells won the prix st georges music freestyle with Jackie Walker’s Pinocchio.
