Congratulations to these two fantastic riders on their results at Dressage NSW Inc Clarendon Winter Festival! Janet Dillon-Smith had a fantastic day on her chestnut Royal Diamond coming 4th in the Prix St George and also 2nd and 4th in the Intermediate I. Jocelyn West also did a rockstar test on her horse Hunterview Rockstar coming 9th in the Prix St George. Janet and Jocelyn use Joint Performance to keep their amazing horses performing at a high level.
Rachael did very well in the 1.20 Open coming home with a 4th and 5th on Amigo and Zina! Rachael’s new boy Casco deserves a special mention for tackling the 1.05 very bravely at his second ever outing!
Jade also had a successful weekend placing 2nd in the 1.05 under 8 points on Verdasco (his long legs making it look far too easy!) and 2nd in the 1.05 Open on Valentina!
It’s always great to see these two whizzing around the Showjumping courses! Congratulations for a great weekend!
Our Team Riders Jade Findlay and Rachael Lee had a very busy long weekend at the Melbourne International 3 Day Event!
Both riders tackled this difficult event brilliantly! Jade did a wonderful job in the Pryde’s EasiFeed CCI3* with a fantastic Dressage test with only time penalties in the cross country to finish mid field on the beautiful Oaks Cordelia!
Rachael kept herself very busy with 4 horses competing over the weekend! In the Horseware CCI2* Lansina and Amigo produced great Dressage tests and tackled the cross country course with ease! In the Off The Track CCI1* French Evening and Chicobella finished mid field in a very large and tough field!
Jade and Rachael deserve a big CONGRATULATIONS for doing so well at a very challenging event! They both need a well deserved break after that long weekend!
The Joint Performance Team Riders Rachael Lee and Jade Findlay had a very busy weekend at the Sydney International Horse Trials!
Both riders had amazing rides, especially around the challenging XC course! Rachael Lee had her hands full with seven of her horses competing! In the CIC** both Amigo and Lansina performed magnificently. Amigo qualified for Melbourne CCI and Lansina came out strong for her first event since October 2015! In the CIC* Tex was in the lead after the first day of competition but is holding a little bit of summer weight so wasn’t running the XC. Chicobello also qualified for the Melbourne CCI so it will be very exciting to see Chico and Amigo at Melbourne! French Evening also performed fantastically in the EvA 105!
Jade Findlay also had a great weekend on her three. In the CIC*** Oaks Cordelia performed a great dressage test and show jumping round with an unfortunate refusal in the xc. In the CIC* F1 Riems was placed very well after the dressage and show jumping with just a few time faults in the xc! Verdasco proved in the EvA 105 that he is going to make a Fantastic eventer tackling this event with ease!
Another Team Rider that has been very busy with her team of horses lately is Olivia Hamood!
Olivia has had a lot of success at the recent Aquis Champion Tour with her 10 horses that all came home with fantastic results! Yirrkala Ebony deserves a special mention who took out the very hotly contested Bronze Tour Final!
Olivia now has a few weeks of hosting the Albert Voorn clinics before competing again and we can’t wait to see more amazing results from Olivia!
Joint Performance had a great time at the Dressage NSW Inc Youth Dressage Championships and were very proud to sponsor both the Medium Classes!
We loved meeting everyone there and were very happy to meet Erin Bullock who WON not one but both of the Medium Classes sponsored by Joint Performance!
Erin and her horse Miss Fanta performed beautiful tests and were a wonderful combination to watch. We look forward to seeing how Joint Performance can help these two continue performing at such an amazing level!
