Hi Sit Tighters!
Even though the winter blues are trying hard to keep us down, the Eventing action on the other side of the world is certainly doing a good job of heating up our screens!
After Melbourne International 3DE all eyes were upon Luhmühlen CCI 4*. Shane Rose jetted off from Melbourne to ride CP Qualified. Katja Weimann & BP Escapade also competed in the CCI 4* but didn’t have the best day in the office cross country day. Shane and “Fluffy” performed extremely well and placed 16th, no mean feat as Shane virtually hopped on his horse only a couple of days before the competition! Sammi Birch (nee MacLeod) competed Hunter Valley 11 in the star studded CIC 3*, placing 6th to show the world “Gizmo” is a true contender for WEG.
Team announcements for Aachen CIC Nations Cup and WEG have really spurred our interest. Barbury was a massive competition in the UK with Aussie riders having a huge presence. Burto on top of the ERM, has he got a WEG contender in his stable of stars”?? Batesy and Rob Palm proving that we can hold our own despite flying more miles than a Qantas pilot
Needless to say, as an Aussie Eventer it’s HOT HOT HOT!!
Now let’s talk about what’s coming up!!!
On Thursday 19th July, 7PM AEST be listening in for the Aachen lead up panel show. Prue Barrett and myself team up again and joining us will be none other than the man on the spot Craig Barrett. Craig is at Aachen experiencing an amazing opportunity for Aussie coaches, training and taking in the event. We chat about (could well become a hotly fuelled conversation!) the Aussie team chances and who’s who to take the win individually.
I hope you’re listening.
We will be wrapping up this panel show with an exciting announcement! So, don’t forget this coming Thursday 19th 7PM but if you miss it of course the replay will be up later as a podcast.
