5 The Weekend Mitavite 2* was won by Emma Mason on Poker Face after they added just 1.6 time penalties from the cross country to their dressage score, while Rachael Lee riding Baillieu led the midweek Cabots 1* class from start to finish adding nothing to their dressage score. Two divisions of 1* ran on the weekend, a very big turnout. Annabel Armstrong cruised up from fourth place after dressage with perfect jumping rounds on Jack in a Box to win the Hornsby Mazda 1*. Unfortunately there was no Mazda on offer as the prize this time, but who knows what the future holds with more and more great sponsors signing up to support one of the most prestigious events on the national eventing calendar. Natalie Blundell won the Horseland 1* weekend class on Girl With A Curl ahead of Lauren Balcomb on Kootamootoo and Jack Hayden on Jaybee Calypso. The pre novice division also had multiple classes at each event. The top places didn’t alter much after dressage in the midweek El Trak pre novice class. Junior rider Teegan Ashby was the winner with Marlo ahead of Christine Bates and Kung Fu Panda GP in second and John Healey on Macro moved up from fifth into third. Portia Wilson won the midweek Bates Equestrian pre novice with Tripple Eight after the dressage leader Lauren Balcomb was eliminated on her flamboyant Kinnordy Rubino. The Hills and Hawkesbury Equestrian News pre novice weekend class was won by the living legend himself, Heath Ryan on Aspire R and Joel Funnell riding Ventue Harry Hamlet won the CWD pre novice weekend class ahead of Rhiannon Bosma on Stirling Thames and Sandy Lucas on Belcam Cyber. 1) Intro Carissa Holmes on Madame Voodoo 2) 2 star Emma Mason on Poker Face 3) 1 star Natalie Blundell riding Girl with a Curl 4) 2 star Kirsty Douglas on Cushavon Crackerjack 5) 2 star Jess Somerfield on Wildfires Revenge 6) PN Joel Funnell on Venture Harry Hamlet 7) 1 star Annabel Armstrong on Bubble and Squeak 8) 1 star Jamie-Rose Torzillo on Flash Az 9) 3 star John Twomey on Wade Equine Highly Recomended Images by Main Event Photography 6 7 8 9 43
