So proud of India placing 4th in the CSIO Young Rider Grand Prix in Fontainebleau this weekend aboard ESM Equestrian’s Fahra ES. The pair jumped a beautiful first round clear, but unfortunately finished 0.3 seconds over the time allowed and therefore incurring a time fault which kept them from contesting the jump off. India finished as highest placed British rider, rounding off a fantastic week for her jumping clear and placing in the opening 1m45 class and jumping a foot perfect clear round in the CSIOY Nations Cup!
Delighted to receive the news of India’s selection onto the British Young Rider team for the upcoming Nations Cup in Fontainebleau. She has been selected with ESM Equestrian’s Fahra ES; congratulations to everyone involved!
After their 2nd place in the Grand Prix at Arena UK last weekend, we were delighted to see India and the ESM Equestrian Team’s Fahra ES jump another stellar double clear in the National Grand Prix, this time at Aintree Equestrian Centre, to be piped to 2nd place once more by just 0.02 of a second. Consistency is key and we are so proud of how far this combination have come together in such a short space of time!
Delighted to see India and ESM Equestrian’s Fahra ES (by Diarado) jump a fantastic double clear in the National Winter Grand Prix at Arena UK to take 2nd place, only beaten by the last to go, Tokyo Olympian show jumper, Holly Smith. Watch their rounds below:
We were delighted to see India taking on the Puissance again at Horse of The Year Show. This class always has a sellout crowd and a great atmosphere! The pair cleared 1m95 to finish in joint 4th on this occasion. We are so happy with their performance!!
We had a great show in Wierden for the Dutch Youngster Festival and it was great to be back jumping abroad after a quieter year last year due to COVID!
Billy Colman jumped fantastic all show placing 2nd in the opening 1m40 YR class out of over 70 combinations! He then stepped up to jump his first LR 1m45 Grand Prix jumping a great round around a strong track, and finished his week placing 4th in the 1m40 YR class on Saturday.
Florida VDL also put in some good performances with a double clear in the opening YR 1m40 class also, and jumping around a very tough 1m45 Nations Cup format in which there were only 5 clears.
We are delighted to announce that India has been selected to represent Great Britain with the Young Riders team in Wierden for their Youth Nations Cup Show at the end of the month.
India was selected on our own 11-year-old gelding Florida VDL after a successful show at Chard CSI** and will also be taking our own and The Billy Stud’s 10-year-old gelding Billy Colman as her second horse. It is so rewarding to be taking two home produced horses, both of which India & Atiya have produced from Newcomers level all the way through.
