Next on the schedule was the prelim class where competitors rode a British Dressage Prelim 1 test. A total of eleven competitors rode up the centre line in front of judge Mark Robinson and scores were tight for first and second placings with only 0.53% separating them. However first place on the day went to Nicola Martin and 'Misty' with 71.58% and second place to Olivia Courtney and 'Moo' with 71.05%.

Again in the Novice class a whisker could have separated the top two placings, with Laura Fekkes and 'Finn' taking the top spot with 67.68% followed by Nichola Wray and 'Springhill Showman' with 67.32%.

The day finished off with the elementary class and with only two competitors Laura Fekkes and Rachel Rendle battled it out for the top spot. It was red for Rachel and 'Meg’ with 68.44% and blue for Laura and 'Finn' with 67.66%.
