Copabella was well represented over the weekend at the very well-attended show in Forbes. Valor was back on form with Dave Cameron, winning the 1.15 Championship. Nellie Waters also had wins and places with Vortex and Courchevel in the 1.00 and 1.10 classes. And Tallara Barwick sailed around the Mini Prix with Verdi, clear in the first round then a flapping side-line distraction in the jump-off causing a rail down.

Apparently the riders' hotel is gorgeous and the shuttles from the hotel are Maseratis, so the show has gotten off to an excellent start. The first to go for Team Equest was Georgie riding Kingsley who went double-clear in the 1.30 class. Tresor was flying in the 1.40 and would have been in the money were it not for one small rider error. Que Sera was also flying but being cheeky at the same time, to finish on a time fault. Finally Vedor had an excellent warm-up round in the 1.50, going read more...

Julia has had another good day, this time jumping clear on Blinky in the Young Horse class, albeit with a few time faults. She is delighted with the young stallion, commenting: "He jumps like a freak!" Then Vedor had one down and a time fault in the 1.50 class to finish mid-field just behind Edwina. Tough class and Julia was again happy with how Vedor is feeling. Brooke has also reported in with good results. Both Vermont and Voltage jumped double-clear and placed in the Youngsters Tour, to read more...

Visage's offspring continue to do him proud this week. We have Vegas at Chantilly in France with Julia, posting clear rounds and picking up a 7th place ribbon today in the tough 1.45 class. And only slightly less glamorous, we have Voltage at Glenhaven with Brooke also posting clear rounds and finishing 4th in the Young Horse series. Cashmir also finished well today at Glenhaven, with one down in the jump-off in her first 1.25 class. And Vermont looked very flash with just one down. Back read more...

Brooke has had a solid first day of competition in Queensland. Unfortunately the ground was a bit hard and unforgiving, and is being worked on overnight. Meanwhile Vermont was clear in the 1.10 but did no jump off. Voltage was double-clear and in the placings in the same class. Cashmir was double-clear in the 1.20 but not quite fast enough for a ribbon. Visage has his first start tomorrow, hopefully in better conditions. X
