Wierden CSIOY

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.

Young Riders Nations Cup Team selection

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.

Winning start to our 2021 season

Due to a long Coronavirus and then EHV break, it is only now that we were able to do our first show of the year, but the horses picked up where they left off with some super results over the two days at the new Keysoe International.

Billy Colman made his start to the season a winning one, taking top spot in a competitive 1m30 class – watch his video below:

Atiya completed her first show with H Rubertha R 6, owned by The Walker Family, with two top 3 placings in the 1m20 classes and an unlucky pole in the 1m30 class on day 2.

Atiya also jumped double clear in the 1m20 class with our exuberant Goldenboy for a lower placing and India & Florida VDL jumped a couple of super rounds in the 1m40 classes for an unfortunate pole in each. 

We are very much looking forward to the season ahead with an exciting bunch of horses!
