It’s crunch time for Kiwi showjumpers who are also looking to make final pushes to impress the Tokyo Olympic Games selectors.
In the USA, Sharn Wordley and Uma O’Neill are both competing at the 168th CSI4* Upperville Colt and Horse Show, the oldest horse show in the states.
Uma aboard Clockwise of Greenhill Z and Sharn on Verdini D’Houtveld Z are both entered in three CSI4* classes – the $US73,000 Upperville Welcome Stakes, the $US213,300 Jumper Classic and the $US37,000 Power and Speed Stakes. Courses at the Virginia show will be designed by Alan Wade (IRL) and Nick Granat (USA).
In Denmark, Tom Tarver and Fiber Fresh Popeye will be looking to do well at the Longines EEF Series CSI3* Uggerhalne 2021 Show, and particularly in the Grand Prix ranking class on Sunday.
