Scottish junior riders have been having an amazing year, winning titles all around the country, but it was on home soil at Muirmill EC that another two titles were to be fought for and won by two of the most consistent riders currently in ponies.
The popular Summer Extravaganza Show saw Scotland's Douglas Duffin return briefly to home soil to snatch a HOYS qualifier the same week he had just been crowned Cock o' The North winner at the Great Yorkshire.
The Cabin EC's 'Sunshine Tour', a fun packed 12 days of show jumping from 80cms through to 1.40m started and ended in scorching heat but during was plagued by storms and floods and some of the worst summer weather seen in the last few years.
From 25 starters just one young lady booked her ticket to the British National Championships as a result of winning the Discovery Second round held at the Scottish National Equestrian Centre near Broxburn.
The sun shone, the crowd were enthralled and enthusiastic, the atmosphere electric and the competition fierce for the 2015 Andrews Bowen Grand Prix held in the main ring at this year's Royal Highland show.
The junior shows have been picking up over the last few weeks thanks to the Highland show qualifiers but Tillyoch Equestrian at Milltimber, Aberdeen offered two days' worth of show jumping from 70cms upwards as well as qualifiers drawing competitors in from far and wide.
