Amazing Weekend at Sydney CDI with Silbermond

John Lieutenant Memorial trophyWhat an amazing weekend I have had with Silbermond.  Not only winning the Intermediate Freestyle but also being awarded the John Lieutenant Memorial Trophy – this award is presented to the individual horse/rider combination obtaining the best two (2) official scores.   Silbermond is a very special horse and we are having a lot of fun together. My huge thanks to his wonderful owners for allowing me the ride and for the incredible support they give me.

Here is the video of the freestyle:

Cederic excels at “new look” Clarendon Comp

Congratulations to Dressage New South Wales for running an awesome January competition in sweltering conditions at Clarendon.  The “new look” Clarendon comp exceeded expectations and we were well looked after with much water, free tea and coffee, and even iceblocks (how good was that – and especially welcomed by spectators and riders).  Not forgetting the free carrots for all horses and ponies.

Cederic Clarendon Jan 13 3

Cederic was awesome and is coming on beautifully.  Very happy rider indeed.  He scored 70.227% in the Elementary 3.1 and 64.583% in the Elementary 3.2.

Great to catch up with everybody.

Ride Well!
