I very much enjoy my annual trip to Haras du Pin, the most beautiful French National Stud in Normandy, hosting a wonderful and welcoming event "Le Grand Complet" staging classes from 1* through to 3*.

 

Have a look at this great article produced by THE HANNOVERIAN, the official Magazine of the German Hannoverian breeding society.

I am very proud of my dear friends and wonderful horses Algebra, Cheeky Calimbo, Rutherglen and The Blue Frontier on their individual campaigns and Olympic qualification achieved. They all showed good form – with wins and placings as well as their individual highs and lows. I can´t thank their owners John Glenn & Julia McLean, Christiane Classen, Barbara Keller and The Rutherglen Syndicate enough for their continuous support, encouragement and letting me ride their wonderful horses.

We are again sitting on packed bags – this time to depart to Tattersalls Horse Trials – so it´s time for an update on our last weekend at Houghton Hall Horse Trials.

 We are about to depart to Houghton Hall International Horse Trials but I of course can´t leave without giving you an update on our last weekend at Rockingham Castle International Horse Trials!

It has been my first visit to Richmond Horse Trials – but I have to say I was more than impressed! A most beautiful facility offering fantastic conditions for an event – in all three phases.

Algebra, The Blue Frontier and Rutherglen have just returned from a successful trip to Sopot Horse Trials.
Sopot offers one of the best competition facilities in Europe – permanent stabling for more than 400 horses, various indoor and outdoor arenas as well as perfect ground on the cross country. I personally love the fact that the horses can "relax" and feel "at home" from the minute of arriving.
