Australian International 3 Day Event  2014

Showjumping Day

16 November 2014


The final day of the event this year saw the rain gone and the big 2 star class start their rounds.  Megan Jones' Kirby Park Impress was withdrawn at the trot up.  Kirsty Douglas and Cushavon Crackerjack had been third overnight but a clear round on both jumping and time saw them finish on their dressage score of 51.30 and take out the class from Christine Bates and Kung Fu Panda who had 2 rails down to finish on 55.50 with Megan ones and Kirby Park Invader third on 56.30.  Cindy Lyall and GI Joe jumped clear to be 6th on 57.90 and take out a thoroughbred award along with Tegan Cook and Better on Sunday who also received a thoroughbred award and finished on their dressage score in 4th on 56.30.

    In the Young Rider Teams competition the combined Qld/Vic team of Grand Andi & I English, S Sullivan & Talent Thyme and M Dekker and Drummer was successful from the WA/NSW team.

In the four star contest all horses passed the morning trot up and as the early poles fell the pressure was on the group at the top of the ladder as the order changed with clear rounds hard to find.  Finally Katja Weimann & BP Cosmopolitan went clear and moved up from 9th after the cross country to 4th position.  Soigne Jackson & Gold had 2 rails down but enough in reserved to safely hold 3rd place while attention turned to Megan Jones and Kirby Park Allofasudden.  They finished with a clear round (and the top placed thoroughbred award) putting the pressure on Jess Manson and Legal Star.  However they were also up to the challenge and also went clear to take of the major prize of the weekend.
