This weekend, 30th/31st July 2016, held The Home International one of the three prolific championships for BYRDS (British Young Riders Dressage Scheme).  All regions (Northern, North West, South West, Southern, Scotland, Wales and Ireland) send teams of their best riders who met the criteria set out by British Dressage to compete with each other.

Overall Southern BYRDS had a fantastic weekend and came home with a 1st place and a 3rd place!

Sam Osborn, Southern BYRDS REP(Surrey):

"Southern BYRDS would like to say thank you to Parwood for hosting lots of our training sessions at your wonderful facilities! Our teams were 1st and 3rd at this weekend's Home International at Sparsholt!.

Most of the girls come to Parwood at least once a month for various dressage training through BYRDS for which I am the Area Rep.  So thank you for hosting our training sessions it's made a huge difference as we've been able to offer continuity in training which has been invaluable. We hope to be able to book more dates for Autumn and Winter 2016".
