We then spent Monday washing and cleaning all the show gear and re packing the truck for a 5am departure Tuesday morning to head up to QLD. The horses travelled really well and we arrived at the beautiful Elysian Fields on the Wednesday afternoon to prepare for competition starting Friday. We can’t thank Pete and Michelle Lang-Mcmahon and the team enough for putting on a truly World Class two weeks of show jumping. Cavalli Park Annibell placed 8th in the Mini Prix and 5th in the Speed class along with Fontaine Blue VDL placing 12th in a very fast Future Stars out of a field of 90. We were very pleased with our young mares CP Aliyah and Kavita both qualifying for the Bronze Final where they took the top 30 combinations out of a field of over 80 competitors from two days of qualifiers. El Nino Vivace also jumped well in the Silver Tour which was a step up for him. Student Jamie Ellis also travelled up with us and placed 8th in the Young Rider Final.
All these horses now get a well, deserved 8 weeks spell.
