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.

Elstar STM Z takes 3rd place in CSIYH* 5yo Grand Prix

We are delighted with the performance of our young stallion Elstar STM Z (Elvis Ter Putte x Cassini I) making his international debut at Chard CSI** over the weekend. 

After a classy clear round on Day 1 to qualify for the Grand Prix, he jumped a super double clear in the Grand Prix to take 3rd place. Thanks to lockdown 3.0 this was only his second show of the year and so we are very excited to see what he can do going forwards!

Watch his jump off round below:

 

Billy Colman takes 2nd in CSI** Medium Grand Prix

Billy Colman made his return to International competition after a long Corona break a very successful one, taking a superb 2nd place in the Medium Tour Grand Prix at Chard CSI**. 

A fantastic double clear saw India & Colman slot into 2nd place behind good friend Georgia Tame who took the winning spot, and the podium was completed by Irish rider Shane Breen. 

Watch their round below!

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!

National Championships 2020 – Round Up

It was great to be back out competing at our first show post lockdown, and what better place to do it than in the beautiful setting of the Bolesworth Estate at the British Showjumping National Championships.

Chesterfield Z was our star of the show placing in the top 10 of both his Championships with Atiya. Firstly, the Under 16 National Championship on Thursday in which the pair finished 7th jumping a beautiful first round clear with an unfortunate time penalty keeping them out of the jump off. He then produced another fantastic clear on the final day of competition in the 1m30 National Championship where they placed 9th.

We were also delighted with our lovely 4-year-old stallion Elstar STM Z who behaved impeccably at his first stay away show taking the atmosphere all in his stride. He jumped two super clear rounds in the 4-year-old classes and in doing so picked up a 4th placing also!

Atiya also stepped up to jump her first 1m45 class with our own 10-year-old gelding Florida VDL in the Under 21s Championship and put in a good performance in the Grand Prix Qualifier/Junior Viewing Trial gaining valuable experience at this level to take forwards.

We are now very much looking forward to our next show which will be Hickstead at the beginning of September, and look forward to this week visiting India in her new base in Germany!

Keelnacally Quilletto Robuck cleans up at Chepstow International

We took five horses to Wales to compete at Chepstow International with Atiya.

Keelnacally Quilletto Robuck dominated the pony classes with a 3rd, two 2nds and a win – including 2nd in the 148 Grand Prix… It was a lovely note to finish our time together with!

Florida VDL also impressed jumping the CSI** Big Tour (1m40) classes with small mistakes keeping the pair out of the results.

6yos Dandy Ste Hermelle, owned by Ross Walker, and Calisto de Laubry Z, owned by Sue Crawford, stepped up to jump the age classes and flew around the 1m30 Grand Prix, their biggest track to date, with ease!

It was also Chesterfield Z’s first show back after a small holiday and he impressed as always with a clear in every class jumped!
