This year has seen some of our most celebrated equestrian events cancelled due to the typical British weather, but despite a bit of rain in the morning, Barbury Castle was in full flow with the sun shining.
The CIC2* sections were a favourite for many spectators and the focus of the day. There have been some recent changes to the course, but it remains one of the bigger CIC2* tracks of the eventing calendar.
Kitty King at Salperton
We were extremely pleased to see our sponsored rider, Kitty King win section Section B on her horse Persimmon. Together they only added 6 time penalties to their dressage score after also jumping clear in the showjumping.
Paul Tapner came second in section B on his horse Indian Mill.
Barbury Castle had a bit of light relief on offer (no one took it that seriously of course!) They had the Hit Air Rodeo Bull Eventers vs Jockeys challenge. Our very own Paul Tapner managed to stay on ‘Billy the Bull’ for a very impressive 59 seconds!
