Riders new to the sport of showjumping weren’t denied their fun in a competition at the Four Winds Equestrian Centre at West Pinchbeck.

‘Fun jumps’ ranging in height from 1ft 6in for beginners and 2ft 3in for riders in the intermediate class were constructed indoors because of pouring rain on Bank Holiday Monday.

The family-run Four Winds provides lessons in all disciplines of equitation, including showjumping, cross country and dressage – and has some wonderful horses for people to ride.

The centre takes riders from the absolute beginner to the best they want to be.
