What a difference a day makes (4* Cross Country results)

What a difference a day makes (4* Cross Country results)

The 2018 Mitsubishi Motors Australian International 3 Day Event provided a great competition for spectators today as the CCI4* field saw the placings move spectacularly around. Mike Etherington-Smith’s CCI four-star cross-country course asked many questions for the field of 24 horses and riders that started the cross-country phase of the event today, with many not having the answers and seeing them exiting the competition with elimination. In an extremely rare occurrence, after finishing in bottom place yesterday, Emily Gray on her 14-year old bay gelding ‘Jocular Vision’ moved up 24 spots to top of the Leader board as the CCI4* Qantas Cross Country phase ends, sitting on 67.30 penalty points. Leading the competition after the cross country, Emily says “I knew this wasn’t going to be a dressage competition for us, we were definitely looking ahead to the Cross Country.  I had my plan in my head.  It was a tough track, I didn’t know what had happened out there, and I wanted to stick to my own plan.” “Heading in to tomorrow’s last day – I have a positive mindset and I’ve just got to stay confident”, said Emily. Event Director Belinda Lindh says “it was a testing four-star course and it challenged the competitors skills today, in particular the new riders to the four-star level”. Sonja Johnson from WA is sitting in second place, exactly where she was sitting this time last year with her horse Misty Isle Valentino, on 67.80 penalties.  Sonja says, “Mike has done a great job designing the course this year, it keeps developing each year, and I hope it keeps evolving in...

Fresh faces in Top 3 after Day 1 of the CCI4*

We have 3 fresh faces in the top 3 positions after Day 1 of the CCI 4* competition – after the Pryde’s EasiFeed Dressage phase. Katie Taliana (NSW) in first place riding to a score of 68,97% with 31 penalties, Emma Bishop (NSW), 68.5% with 31.5 penalties in second place and Lauren Brown (WA) in third place 67.70% with 32.30 penalties – Aussie Girl Power! Katie is a member of the Generation Next HP squad for Eventing and has previously worked for Zara Phillips in the UK.  She purchased her beloved horse Trevalgar II in the UK for 1000 pounds and brought him back to Australia. Katie says ‘he is amazing, he is such a good boy and will do anything I ask of him.  He’s been a bit tricky over the last 12 months, but he was back to his normal self today’. When asked how she feels about sitting in first place after day one, she says ‘I’m a bit excited – I’m stoked actually!  The first time I came here, I really wanted to do well in the dressage and I came fourth.  This year he has just got better and better and I’m really excited’. Second place Emma is also a member of the Generation Next HP squad for Eventing and first competed at Adelaide in 2002 when it was a 3* and she won the CCI2* at Adelaide in 2017 on Warrego Marco Polo. This is Emma’s first 4-star competition for several years – she last competed in 4 star 10 years ago.  Her horse CP Issey Miyake, named after a brand of perfume,...

Rachel Lee riding Urodel Du Texier score superbly at 2-star Dressage Day

Rachel Lee from NSW and Urodel Du Texier currently lead the Horseland CCI2* at the Mitsubishi Motors Australian International Three Day Event (#MMAus3DE) following the first day of competition on Thursday’s CCI2* Dressage Day. Closely followed by WA rider Cindy Lyall riding GI Joe with a score of 31.20 penalties in 2nd, Vic’s Amanda Ross riding Dondiablo sitting in 3rd and another of Vic’s riders, Claire McDermott on Klydoscope, rounding out the top four placings. This makes for a very close and tough competition for the top contenders coming into Saturday’s tough cross-country phase, with less than 6 penalties between 1st and 20th place. Some great results to come through from today’s dressage are the Young Riders, with Samuel Jeffree riding Jaybee Calypso coming in at a spectacular 6th placing, with 33.10 penalties, going into the cross country phase. Steph Hann, one of SA’s own Young Riders, was another rising star to make an impact on the placings. Being her first Aus3de she has done very well to place 18th ahead of Saturday’s XC with 36.50 penalties, and is in the top 4 Young Riders from dressage for the CCI2*. With a rest day tomorrow for the Horseland CCI2* riders, Saturday’s Qantas Cross Country Day will be an exciting competition with the cross country course sure to test  both horse and rider. Tomorrow the gates will open at 8.00am for the commencement of the Pryde’s Easifeed Dressage Day and Twilight program. The lunch break will feature the Dressage Masterclass, with Grand Prix Rider Tor van den Berge, followed by the much anticipated Mitsubishi Motors CCI4* Dressage. At 5pm the...
