'Secret' is now fitting in competitions and training her youngsters

win in the novice class of 5 year old Sinclair V, with 67% at
Swallowfield and a novice qualifier on six year old Hugo Bos
at the Forest of Dean Equestrian Centre with 68% in both or
their first affiliated British Dressage competitions.
