A very busy weekend at Weston Park Horse Trials is behind us and I would like to thank everyone at “Team Hoy” for their hard work and fantastic support! I could not do it without you!!

Weston Park was our final “stopover” towards our two spring highlights – Montelibretti and Badminton – and I was very pleased with all horses, performing well on their last training run.

Algebra, Cheeky Calimbo and The Blue Frontier will be heading to CCI3* Montelibretti while their stablemate Right To Play´s Jack Sparrow will contest his first CCI1* in the beautiful south of Italy. We will be leaving the UK on Sunday, 19th  April and after a 2.000 kilometer trip with stopovers in Aachen, Munich and Modena we look forward to arriving at our destination on Wednesday, 22nd April – well in time for the horses to start their competition with their first trot up on Thursday, 23rd April – followed by dressage on Friday, Cross Country on Saturday and Showjumping on Sunday.

Rutherglen and Lanfranco will continue their fitness work at home during my absence and we will complete our final preparations for Badminton upon my return. Both horses are looking and feeling great and I am very much looking forward to be returning to Badminton with these two wonderful horses.
