Well Sydney Royal Easter Show is over and we are back home preparing for the Showcase of Showjumping at the Polo Fields at Richmond (21 and 22 April) and the Weekend of World Cups at SIEC (28 and 29 April).
We have been planning for Sydney Show since January, planning what competitions to take the horses too and their jumping programme. We decided to miss applying to be part of the Nations Cup Australian Team at NZ Horse of the Year Show as I could only take one horse and had another 5 horses at home to be keep fit and compete with.
Shane Rose won the individual competition at the international horse trials held in NZ. It's an event for selection to the London Olympics. The team were also victors in the senior competition.
