The team arrived back from 3 weeks in sunnier climates after their successful tour at the Mediterranean venue in Oliva Nova, Spain.
William and Pippa took 9 horses to the tour with all of them enjoying great results and certainly enjoying the weather and beautiful surroundings!
Pippa and Billy Amber (Billy Congo x Abdullah) got week 1 off to a flying start with a 3rd place in the 1.40m Grand Prix following 2 other placings earlier in the week in the 1.40m classes. The following week it was the 7 year old Billy Spiral (Tangelo x Billy Mexico) that was to finish 3rd in the 1.40m Grand Prix!
Pippa was also dual handed for the 1.45m classes with Billy Kodak (Billy Mexico x Vechta) being placed in 3 of the 1.40m classes before stepping up and placing twice in the 1.45m classes and Billy Buckingham (Billy Congo x Clover Hill) who was placed in 4 of the 1.45m classes!
William’s horses were also on fantastic form with Billy Ring (Billy Congo Kannan) taking the first win for the team in a competitive 1.40m class, her win was accompanied with many other great placing during the tour. The 7 year old Billy Take That (Billy Mexico x Wellington) has been impressive all year and jumped consistently well throughout the tour before he was stepped up to jump his first 1.45m class.
The star of the show though was the wonderful Billy McCain (Cevin Z x Cruising) who along with numerous placings WON the 1.45m Grand Prix on the 2nd week of the tour!!!
Thank you to our brilliant team of Zoe, Emily and Lily who made sure the horses were happy, healthy and looking their best!
