Cold morning starts were totally forgiven at Ballarat Horse Trials last week when they were followed by beautiful sunny days!

In the CCI4star both Wimborne Conjuror and Santoro had a few fizzy moments in the dressage on Saturday. On the whole they both jumped well overall despite some rails on both horses and Sammy taking out a frangible pin during his cross-country round – they finished in 5th and 6th place. Big thanks to our sponsors BetaVet Australia who also came on baord and sponsored this class at the event!

The star of the event was the catch ride Tulara Baltango, who not only completed his first 3 star event but took out the win on the way! Thanks to Sophia Hill for training him so well and allowing me to look after her horse while she is overseas!

Mr Spot was in the CCI2star and despite needing some reminding about what was required in the dressage ring he redeemed himself by showing great style around the jumps!

Wimborne Caitlin came along for a consolidation run in the EvA95 and ended in 6th place!
