The McNab Eventing team are once again celebrating, in what is becoming a very busy and successful season for them with both the novice and more experienced horses showing consistent and winning form.
The team had a great weekend at Burnham Market International Horse Trials in Norfolk. Brookfield Innocent, Brookfield Quality and Willunga were superb in the Intermediate section while Casperelli jumped an impressive double clear in the CIC***.
Kevin’s team had another great weekend at Hambleden Horse Trials with Brookfield Benjamin Bounce winning his BE100 section and INXS taking third in another Novice section.
Emma was on top form at Ballindenisk International Horse Trials, where Toby was a superstar in the CIC***. He was fourth after a beautiful dressage followed by a steady double clear to finish tenth and earning his 4**** qualification.
It was then on to Withington Manor Horse Trials which were a great two days for the team again. Day one saw a fantastic result for INXS, finishing second on his dressage score. Day two was just as exciting, with all the horses jumping the big Open lntermediate track easily.
Moreton Morrell Horse Trials saw Cartania at her first event and she gave a fantastic performance, finishing on her dressage of 24.3.
At Aston Le Walls Horse Trials, there were prizes all round for the team. Brookfield Motation was first and Brookfield de Bouncer second in their BE100 sections. Cartania was second in her first BE100. The Helen Drewitt owned Jilsonne van Bareelhof was second in the Novice, FRH Ramona fourth, Nicole Pearson's Mr Bean was ninth in his first Novice and Rosie Hardy's Clonshire eighth. Clifton Spyder was seventh in his first Intermediate.
Emma will ride Fernhill Tabasco owned by Kevin McNab, Dom and Poppy Worcester, Julia and Jamie Dougall, and Kevin has been selected with Casperelli owned by Samia Murgian and Mark Sartori.
