Puhinui International Horse Trials 2014 !!!

Wednesday, December 10, 2014 - Joanne Bridgman
NZ's Puhinui Horse Trials 2014  has just finished  yet another very successful and fun event, and this year  the weather gods laid on the sunshine - a fair amount of sunburnt people were wandering around
Thanks to the hard working team of organisers and of course the very generous and loyal sponsors of each class !!!
Sadly I could  not ride this year, but had a enjoyable  time catching up with some great friends  , and  was busy doing  my usual task of videoing some of the smart horses for sale to show our clients .

Tim Price classy 1.65m  without saddle !!!It was great Jonelle and Tim Price could make it .' Jonelle is currently the No 2 Event Rider in the World which is tremendous and we  are VERY proud of her !!!!  they even  rode  in the " high jump" competition one evening much to everyones delight.  Tim managed 1.60m bareback and shirtless !!! 

Additional international flavour.....  UK event rider Nick Gauntlett campaigned his new ride  "El Grado " in the 3* class .

Winners Clarke and Katharine celebrating !!!Clarke Johnstone won the HONDA NZ CCI***  dressage to finish with faultless jumping on his stunning floating grey "Balmoral Sensation".
 Check out this video of his great XC ride , clear with no time faults  .  This combination is relatively new, barely 12 months old  , and  definitely has a   powerful and exciting future ahead of them !!! 

The CATO PACKAGING CCI** was cleaned up by Katharine Van Tuyl on her super cute ,, mega jumper 7 yo  "Double J Sunshine ". Sunny moved up from 9th after dressage  to take the lead easily after a bit of carnage in the 2* XC .
The HONDA NZ CCI**Y class was won with confidence  by Sarah Young on her well performed "SS Galaxy".
The VERERINARY ASSOCIATES CCI* class  was won from the dressage score  by  " Mi Focus" and Aleisha Collet , foot perfect all weekend.
The DEVI HEATING SYSTEMS CCI*J class was convincingly won by very talented young lass Abigail Long and "BMW Advokaat".
