After a stunning day in the sun, day one of the two day Mitsubishi Motors Grassroots Championships competition sees three riders at the head of the leader-boards of the BE90 and BE100 Grassroots Championships.
The current BE90 Mitsubishi Motors Grassroots dressage leader is 23 year old Oil and Gas Recruitment Consultant, Zoe Symes riding Serendipity IV (known as ‘Dippy’). The pair who have come to Badminton from Trowbridge are on an incredible score of 18.3.
The dressage for the BE90 contenders continues on Wednesday at 09:00 with show jumping beginning at 12:00. The riders will then set off across the hallowed turf of the Badminton parklands in the cross country phase from 13:15.
The BE100 section of the Mitsubishi Motors Grassroots Championships is currently being jointly lead by two Rachels who finish the day on a very strong mark of =27.8. Rachel Lade is riding Surprise Addition whilst Rachel Holden rides Martel.
The dressage for the BE100 also continues at 9am on Wednesday. The show jumping in this section then starts at 09:45 with cross country kicking off at 11:00.
