Over the weekend, the Willinga team traveled to The Mitsubishi Motors Australian International 3 Day Event, to support our sponsored rider Hazel Shannon and horse WillingaPark Clifford.
They were attempting to make history and win the event twice (back-to-back). Unfortunately it wasn’t quite the fairy tale ending we had hoped for, but what a weekend!
The cross country course challenged even the most experienced riders. The pair absolutely nailed the “impossible” Fence 8, which proved to be a real question for so many others in the field. They also produced a beautiful, clear showjumping round on Sunday (one of only 3 clear rounds!). We couldn’t be prouder, and are very excited to be involved with this combination in to the future.
Our sincere condolences go to the family of Gillian Rolton who sadly passed away on Saturday. Gill has certainly left a huge legacy with this great event. Thanks to the Adelaide committee for their hard work behind the scenes to make it all come together this year.
