A new South Yorkshire competition venue opened its doors to riders for first time last Sunday (30 October).

Derby House Stables, in Mattersey, Doncaster, hosted an unaffiliated showjumping competition with classes up to 1.20m.

Former pony eventing European medallist Lindsey McDonald is based at the equestrian centre, which boasts three brand new arenas plus an all-weather dressage area.

Weekly dressage and showjumping events are planned and an eight-acre cross-country track is also on the cards.

Owner Juliet Harrison said: “We have created a lovely setting for the local community and it was good to see so many people having a wonderful day.”
