Success for Beezie and Sarah at Linz CSI**/CSIO*** in Austria!

Linz CSIO*** - Austria 2014

Linz CSIO*** – Austria 2014

After 1 year competing abroad in Europe with Team Yalambi, Sarah returned to where it all began last year in Linz, Austria. This time she took her 8yr old Mare, Beezie, for the three weeks of jumping. Highlights of the second CSI** at Linz included 13th place in Friday’s and 12th place in Sunday’s Silver Tour classes. For the CSIO*** Sarah and Beezie jumped in the European Youngster classes offered to riders under 25 years. The classes encouraged progression throughout the weekend, with Thursday’s Table C set at 1.35m, Saturday’s A2 set at 1.40m and Sunday’s Jump-off class at 1.45m. The pair jumped a super round in Sunday’s European Youngster Cup to finish 10th.

Sarah and Beezie will train with Alison Rowland at their base (Stall Boeckmann) in Lastrup, Germany for a few weeks before heading to their next international show.

Good finish to MET!!

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

A good final weekend at the Oliva CSI3* for the PPH team! Beezie jumped clear in Thursdays 1.35m Table C to finish 22nd. An unfortunate 1 time penalty in the first phase of Fridays 1.35m 2 Phase class pushed her down to 45th, in what was otherwise a fantastic round. Little Britton settled for 35th (mid field) in Fridays 1.40m Accumulator class.

After 9 weeks on Tour in Spain and 6 weeks of solid jumping, the PPH team headed home to Germany for some much needed rest. Both Beezie, Blackie and Sarah are going to miss walking along the Mediterranean on Mondays.

Mediterranean Equestrian Tour 2014! Tour Two!

 

Mediterranean Equestrian Tour 2014!

The world’s best riders have gathered in the Equestrian Centre Oliva Nova for eight weeks of competition (Three Tours), participating in an intense schedule of International Show Jumping Competitions. Riders from Germany, France, Spain, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, USA, Portugal, Russia, Turkey, South Africa and Switzerland, among others, are participating in the MET 2014. All together approximately 350 riders from 44 countries and five continents, as well as a total of more than 2,000 horses from the world’s best stables are participating in this year’s MET.

Held at the impressive Centro Ecuestre Oliva Nova facility in Spain. Currently, there are five sand arenas the largest 100m x 80m, and the exceptional Grand Prix grass arena (120m x 80m). The facilities were built in the last quarter of 2011 and the first competition started in February 2012.

The second tour commenced 11th February through to 2nd March. Little Britton put out consistent performances in the Silver Tour 1.40m classes over the three weeks, jumping really smooth rounds. Beezie produced numerous clear rounds in the Silver and Gold Tour 1.30m & 1.35m classes. We are very pleased with this talented mare (Quasimodo Z/Manhattan/Quidam De Revel)!
