Introducing my support crew – always there – always cheering for me. A big thank you to all you guys.
Here’s the challenge….who can name them all?
What 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:
Sadly my beautiful mare Cassie (Yardley Charisma) passed away today. Cassie was an amazing part of my family and of Australian Dressage. She was Australian Grand Prix Champion in successive years in 1997 and 1998 at the Sydney CDI.
Even today she was looking after her grand-daughter. It’s pretty amazing to look out into the paddocks and see her two sons and two of her grand children.
What an amazing mare. You will be sadly missed by us all.
Thank you for the ride Cassie.
How excited and proud I am of Albert’s wonderful result today. Even more amazing that this was only his second Prix St. George. He coped so well in the bigger atmosphere of the Sydney CDI, a first for him and an important step in his development in dressage.
What a fantastic event the Sydney CDI is and an amazing experience for both riders and spectators. If you can get along in the next few days your support would be really appreciated.
Many congratulations to Sheridyn Ashwood and Prestige VDL with 68.85% in the Grand Prix – well done and a great result. Looking forward to seeing more success for you over the next few days.
See you there!
