Sydney Three Day Event

Vodpod videos no longer available.
Another weekend at Sydney watching Shane Rose blitz an event. I had a great time coming to SIEC for the first time in many years without an official role at the event. I was there purely to shoot, record and write, I had fun. There was lots of fun in our very small Media Centre where Lauren, Michelle & Harriet from Equestrian Australia based themselves as well as Alison & Deb from An Eventful Life (I wasn’t working for them at Sydney), Anna & Julie from Horse Deals and myself, plus a few who popped in and out.

I was lucky enough to sit in the Judges box at C to shoot my Dressage pics, thanks to the lovely Christina.

The new Mike ES designed cross country course looked awesome despite the fact it was missing the new signature complex, a water element right in the centre of the park. It wasn’t finished in time thanks to the horrid weather we have had since Christmas.

Nonetheless the action was great and the final result I believe added more questions than answers for the Aussie team selectors for the London Games. I loved watching Shane and Taurus tear up the event from start to finish but my favourite performance of the weekend was Emma Scott and Mustang who looked awesome and came in a deserving second place.

I finally got to meet @Cazdrop who I felt like I had known for years thanks to twitter, we hung out and shot XC together. Got to do that again Caz.

Off to Camden next for the Eventing Equestriad, until then yours in Eventing.
