Eventing Rider Blogs

The four horses that travelled on Shane Rose's truck to Adelaide all had podium finishes, including first and second in the CCI4* - you can’t do much better than that! Groom Rachel Watts tells us how her week in Adelaide unfolded

Alice Hirst's win at Colac was a good preparation for the 3DE at Lakes and Craters where things went with a bang on cross country (especially her air vest!)

Kate Mckenzie thought she had found the secret to a good dressage test at Berrima but, then again, as her daughter suggests "it is really quite easy and maybe I’m doing it wrong….."

It was a mixed Australian International 3DE for Tinney Eventing but there are some interesting stats from the big event in Adelaide

We welcome 18 year old Molly Barry to our stable of bloggers and she starts with a bang, having just completed her first Australian International 3 Day Event on a horse she produced herself

With Teegan Ashby's top horse sidelined, has she turned into a show jumper (or a showie?!!)

Alice Hirst runs through the processes to prepare her horse for the 12 hour trip across the water and it seemed to work with a 1* win at Colac after getting off the boat!

Never in my 15 years of riding had I ever wanted to throw in the towel and call it a day, to skip lessons or not go out for cross country training....and it was only because I was completely oblivious to what the real world was like

"It's a long way to Adelaide , we'd better get going" ... Jess Manson and Trumby (Legal Star) are heading back to defend their 4* title

While Gemma is busy with HSC (but fitting in some show jumping), Stuart is getting several horses ready for Adelaide - the Spring update from Tinney Eventing
