A Brechin dressage rider is celebrating after great success at the Tayside Dressage winter league at Easter Rattray in December.

Courtney Steel, who is 17 years old, came out on top in the novice 27 and 28 tests riding Zivolda, who is back competing after an injury which had forced the pair to miss much of the summer and autumn competitions.

Upon their return to competition, the pair gained three consecutive double wins.

Their great success has also seen them qualify for regionals at novice level.

Courtney, who has previously been a runner-up at prelim level for the Morris/SF championship final, is hoping to qualify for the event once more.
