The Vine & Craven Point-to-Point At Barbury Castle
Today’s break in the horrendous weather we’ve suffered so far this year felt like a mini victory! The promise of blue skies and warm sunshine all day was too good an opportunity to miss being outside to enjoy some sport (plus the bonus of a rare child free weekend), so I decided to head out for the day to practice with the camera at BarburyView full post

Bart Bles with Lord Sandro DDH – here in Amsterdam. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.This weekend, two international shows are on in Germany – Dortmund hosts a three star event while Braunschweig has welcomed riders to a four star show. On Friday it was the Netherland’s Bart Bles who won the biggest class in Dortmund – a 1.45 Longines ranking class that also served as a qualifier for the Masters League Final on Sunday. Riding Lord Sandro DDH – a 12 year old stallion by Lordanos x Sandro – Bles rode the only double clear of the class to take home the win. Runner-up was Hans-Thorben Rüder on Orlanda (Julio Mariner xx x Caretino) who was almost two seconds faster than Bles in the jump-off, but on the expense of a pole down. In third followed Julia Kayser on Sterrehof’s Cayetano (Caretano Z x Cor de la Bryere), also she with four faults in the jump-off.

A $34,000 G&C Farm 1.45m speed class was held Friday afternoon in the International Arena at PBIEC with an exciting win for Ben Maher (GBR) and Jane Clark’s Aristo Z. The class saw 60 competitors with 20 clear rounds and an increasingly fast pace as the rounds went on. Fifth to go, Shane Sweetnam (IRL) and Spy Coast Farm LLC’s Cyklon 1083 set a very tough time to beat at 63.23 seconds. The pair held the lead through most of the class until two of the finals competitors eventually pushed them into third.
