    Two other horses in the senior class were sent to the holding box, but were passed when re-presented to the ground jury of Polly Ann Huntingdon (president), Xavier Le Sauce and Annabel Scrimgeour.

    These were Julia Norman’s ride Ardeo Berlin, owned by her father-in-law Keith Norman and Bruce Fraser, and Dan Jocelyn’s mount Cooley One To Many, owned by Sophie Allison, Shaun and Lucy Allison, Daisy Berkeley, her husband Charles and mother Caroline Dick. Dan sits in eighth place going into the showjumping and Julia in 29th.
