Brooke has pretty much cleaned up at Camden today, starting with a win in the 4-year-old class riding Oaks Donatella for Alice Cameron. She followed this up with a win in the 5-year-old class riding Katie Abbott's Coco Chanel, closer to the optimum time on the mare than she was on Copabella's entry, Voltage (Visage-Holland Rose) who finished 2nd. In the 6-year-old classes, both Vermont (Visage-Courchevel) and Cashmir (Chequille Z-Holland Rose) were clear in the warm-up class, then Vermont had a read more...

Julia is very happy with Vedor. The pair finished 12th in the big Gold series Grand Prix yesterday, on just one time fault. What a great finish to a successful series in Oliva. Go to the Europe 2014 file in the Gallery for some shots of Team Equest at these shows.

It was another faultless day for Team Equest, not a rail in sight. Georgie and Treor finished 15th in the Silver 1.40 A2 out of 60 starters, five places ahead of her coach riding young Camilla. Julia and Vedor have also qualified for the Gold Grand Prix final tomorrow.

Team Equest went very well yesterday, starting with Georgie and Blue Rinse finishing 4th in the Bronze 1.40 Accumulator, out of 39 starters. Julia and Vegas also went clear to finish 16th out of 70 starters in the Silver series 1.40 Accumulator.In fact Team Equest had no rails at all. Georgie and Tresor finished 15th in the Silver series 1.30, in a field of 76, while Julia and Camilla finished 22nd in the same class, just a little slower in the jump-off.

The last show in the series started yesterday and Julia was very happy with Vedor's clear round in the 1.45 Gold series class. No time faults, but it was the slowest of the clears to finish 19th, just behind Jamie Winning and Nick in 18th place. Young Que Sera also jumped well but had the last down in the 1.40 class. (More atmosphere shots from Georgie.)

We are delighted to report that Grace Sattout has assumed ownership of Venice who is the last foal out of Lesley's international competition mare Toddingham. She is, of course, by Visage. Venice was born in February 2008, and produced a lovely Pinto Cadiz colt named Camouflage in 2012. She is now back in full work at Copabella and looking forward to a successful career with her new rider.

It's been a good weekend for the Australian contingent in Spain and a full report of results can be found on Jenny Sheppard's page on Facebook. Team Equest did well, with Georgie and Tresor on form to finish 6th and 14th in the 1.30 Silver series. Que Sera was also jumping well with Julia, doubl-clear and 12th in the 1.40 Gold series. Vedor looked great in the tough 1.50 Grand Prix final, but two unlucky rails pushed him to 37th spot in a very compwtitive field.

Tallara has been in touch with news that Verdi (Visage-Holland Rose) completed his first 2* at SIEC over the weekend. He was apparently a little "opinionated" for the dressage and Tal was not going for time cross-country on their debut run, so there were quite a few time penalties as well, but they still finished 13th. A great effort. X

Yet again we have horses competing both here and in Europe, and the results to date have been pleasing all round. Visage finished a close 3rd in teh 1.35 class at Maitland yesterday, close behind Clem Smith on his two. Vermont and Cashmir also jumped well in big classes, getting a lot of attention in the process. In Oliva, Spain, Georgie was really happy with Blue, who took a while to adjust to Europe, but who is now right back on track and jumping great. He finished on day one clear and in read more...
