MSJ horses past and present had a very successful weekend at Somerford Premier League notching up 7 wins out of 8 classes contested!
All finished with top 3 placings with 4-8 year olds!
Mount St John Freestyle was our star of the show with Charlotte Dujardin winning her PSG with 78.9% and Inter 1 with 77.7%. At only 8 years old we are so excited about their future together!
Then in the young horse classes, Jayden Brown our new resident head rider contested in the FEI young horse tests only 2 days after landing from a month in Australia! Jayden won Saturdays 5 year old test with MSJ Fascinate on 7.86 and the 6 year old with MSJ Top Secret on 7.5.
Winning Sunday's 5 year old class was Ryan Todd and Di Romantica a mare born, raised and started under saddle at MSJ after buying her dam in foal, she was purchased by the Mothersdales last year and is looking super! On Sunday Jayden went on to finish then 2nd and 3rd with a couple of mistakes but showing so much promise for such new combinations after they have had little time to get to know each other.
Monday's young horse classes saw Charlotte compete in the BD 6 year old class with Mount St John VIP who won with 8.74 after a clockwork test. 4 year old MSJ Furstin Diaz after a traumatic journey to the show which involved being unloaded on the side of the highway to change lorries after a breakdown, ended up 3rd on 7.56 with Lucinda Elliott. Meanwhile the stunning young stallion MSJ Distinction ridden by Micheal Eilberg who purchased him as a foal went on to win the 4 year old class with 8.44! What an exciting combination they are for the future!
