Another 8a.m. start but despite the autumn chill in the air, about 80 volunteer Fence Judges arrived at the Fidelity Hospitality Marquee to be issued again with the usual stop watches, flags, scorebooks, whistles, etc. As always, this amazing team chatted and swapped stories which all begin “I remember when I was a Fence Judge [...]
The Japanese team, who have now qualified for London 2012
The final much-coverted spot for automatic qualification for London 2012 for group F and G went to underdogs Japan after a nail biting and somewhat controversial show jumping phase.
The New Zealand team actually won the three—way team completion on a score [...]
Winner Piggy French and DHI Topper W
The omens for Olympic success continue to bode well for Piggy French. She took home the £8,000 CCI*** winners cheque at the Fidelity Blenheim International Horse Trials courtesy of a win with her father Wally and Michael Underwood’s Greenwich Test Event winner DHI Topper W.
‘I’m so proud of him,’ [...]
Winner William Fox-Pitt and Oslo
William Fox-Pitt and the Fox-Pitt Eventing Partnership’s Oslo led from start to finish to win the increasingly popular and prestigious 8/9 year-old CIC*** at the Fidelity Blenheim Place International Horse Trials on a score of 43.5. He also demonstrated the strength of his string for 2012 and beyond by finishing third [...]
It was all change at the top of the leaderboard in the CCI before the show jumping had even begun with neither Piggy French’s leading horse, Judy Bradwall’s Lemington Lett Dance, nor Pippa Funnell’s ride Billy Landretti, who had been in third place overnight, being presented at the final trot up. Although obviously disappointed, Piggy [...]
Join fence judges Steph Freeman and Mike Bain, as they give EWW readers a “behind the scenes” look at the Fidelity Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials.
The army of volunteers!
Is it the love of early morning starts and late afternoon finishes that make hundreds of volunteers turn out every weekend of the Eventing season? Maybe it’s [...]
A select field of seven competitors: Laura Collett on Jitterbug, Paul Tapner on Tiger Flynn, Nici Wilson on Ucaro, Julie Tew on HHS Foracruise, Austin O’Connor on Zlatan, Alex Hua Tian on Commander and JP Sheffield on DHI Hindle kept the large crowd hugely entertained.
The competitors had a practice fence, which they were allowed to [...]
William Fox-Pitt retained his lead in the CIC*** by jumping a clear show jumping round with Oslo. In fact he extended it by four penalties after second-placed Mark Todd and NZB Campino lowered a pole. William also sits in equal third placed with his second ride, Judy Skinner’s Lionheart, who will be first out on [...]
The scene has been set for a nail biting conclusion to the London 2012 team qualifier for the FEI Group F and G Oceana region, running as part of the CCI***, with just one show jump separating the two teams looking for that prized spot – Australia and Japan. New Zealand has already qualified for [...]
The CCI*** competition itself was just as tight going into cross country with less than two marks separating the top four combinations and less than 10 separating the top 20. As expected, there was a shake up after cross-country with Eric Winter’s course proving to be both fair and challenging. The first of real contenders [...]
