Competitive Training Day 2018 – a scorcher of a day!

Sonnenaufgang Quest at the competitive training day

Vale and West held it’s third successful Competitive Training Day 2018 on the 21st July at Ryden Farm in Worcestershire with the kind permission of Helen and Chris Phillips.

As usual the weather played it’s part in the proceedings, although unlike in previous years, it was clear skies and full sunshine to be dealt with, with temperatures in the high 20’s. Hat’s, sunscreen and plenty on water at the ready!
