NRM National 3DE Taupo !!!

Wednesday, May 21, 2014 - Joanne Bridgman
The NRM National 3Day Event at Taupo ( NZ) was another great event  !!!
Thick fog greeted us each morning  which was quite disorientating for riders and horses but by late afternoon the sun was beaming down on us .  I heard there were a couple of little earthquakes one evening as well .

Clarke and "Balmoral Sensation" XC.Clarke Johnstone was man of the moment with the lovely "Balmoral Sensation" ( Ritchie ) taking out the CCI*** . This was their 3rd 3* win in a row and they are clear winners of the Super League too.  This partnership have only been together a few months,  Ritchie was  previously ridden and produced by the talented Donna Smith .  It  is looking to be an exciting future together and Clarke has his sights on representing NZ in the future with this talented horse.
Runner up was Donna Smith and "Balmoral Tangalooma" looking great in all 3 phases, another exciting combination for the future .
Third placing was Kelsey Rothery and her wonderful little horse "The Felon", just powered around the big track showing tremendous talent and confidence.

Diane Gilder and "Your Attourney " had a well deserved win in the CCI** leading from start to finish jumping double clear.
Amanda Pottinger , and the lovely "Just Kidding" took out the CCI* Championship class and Maddy Crowe and "Brogan" won the CCI* Non Championship class.
