Sunday 12th July saw riders from GB, Netherlands and Ireland compete in the international classes at Kings Forest, close to Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. This was the second international ride there this year, organised by Dianne Luke.

The CEI3* 160km winner, Nicola Thorne, riding L M 42 led the pack for the majority of the race and also took Best Condition.

In second place was Annette Masterson, who represented GB at the 2014 World Equestrian Games, on Millenium Chorus and third went to Louise Rich on Oakleazefarm Cziko. Fourth went to Dutch rider, Donna Oudshoorn riding Sera.

Donna rode at the 2012 World Endurance Championships at Euston Park for the Netherlands on her horse, Karrimh, who tragically fell and died shortly after in Newmarket. Donna made the trip over to England to compete her new horse Sera in his first 3* to commemorate Karrimh.

In the 120km CEI2* the win went to Harry Ingram riding Warrens Hill Chayze, second to David Yeoman on Trop Vite Azureen, who also won Best Condition and third to Andrea Champ on Druimghigha Luxor.

The 80km CEI1* winner Kathy Carr riding Aberllwyd Femme Fatalle won Best Condition. Second place went to Sharon Parr who was also riding a Warrens Hill horse, Warrens Hill Troy.
