Holy Bruce completes 4 star at Adelaide International 3DE


Photo credit: Stephen Mowbray- An Eventful Life

Belinda has just arrived home from her trip east after competing at Adelaide International 3DE and successfully completing the 4 star. Belinda produced a lovely dressage test from Holy Bruce however the highlight was a fantastic clear round cross country around a tough 4 star track designed by the International course designer Mike Etherington Smith. The course held exceptional international quality and a classy ride by Belinda had Bruce jumping brilliantly and becoming more confident as the course went on. Perth Performance Horses could not be happier with this performance and hope that it brings many more opportunities for next season and into the future.

Emma had a great weekend riding Diamond B Catapulte around the Newcomers & Junior Championship classes at the Swan River annual Championship event! She made the jump-off for both classes, placing 6th in the Junior with a polished but steady double clear! Emma is building a strong partnership with this super cool little mare!

Holy Bruce Qualified for Adelaide CCI4*

IMG_8130Bruce and Belinda finished in the 3rd place in the Wooroloo CCI3* gaining their qualification for Adelaide International 2015!

They jumped a lovely show jumping round, just touching one down with the tip of his toe.

A little time accumulated on the cross-country knocked them from 1st position, but we are thrilled with Bruce’s performance over the weekend and he has pulled up fighting fit and ready to go again!

If all goes to plan, Belinda is aiming to take Bruce back to Adelaide this year to have another crack at the 4*!
