Gold medal event rider, Stuart Tinney, is the consummate equestrian professional. In a tough and difficult sport, Stuart continues to produce incredible results, beautifully schooled horses and well trained pupils.
In the competition arena, Stuart has had more success than any other Australian rider based in this country. An Olympic gold medal from Sydney 2000, representative honors at the 2004 Athens Olympics and since 1988 at consecutive World Equestrian Games.
|June and early July we have had back to back events. The State Interschools, where Gemma placed in the Eventing on Prado and Carlchen- (4th and 2nd) now qualified for the Nationals. Carlchen showing his hand in the show jumping too- Placing 2nd 1.20m. The ENSW doing a fabulous job with so many events to organize and weather not ideal. Gemma also winning the bare back AGAIN - This time at only 1.60m !|
The Eventing season is well underway, however the calendar a little sporadic, hence some hectic weeks, then a lull. We have Sydney (25/26 July)then a few weeks until we are out again. Stuart being very busy with the CC design of Sydney. The big picture this year is Adelaide in November where we hope to run 3 horses, Pluto, War Hawk and Annapurna. Gemma has her sights on the 2 star with Thai, however with HSC looming I think the reality of this will be too much. ( Hope you are not reading this Gem!!)
The FEI WORLD rankings EVENTING has seen Stuart back in the top 10
Straight after Interschools Gemma went off to Denman to run Prado and Thai around the pre-nov. Great result for her first competition on Thai (5th) and 7th for Prado. She plans to go 1 star on Prado at Sydney ODE and with Quirindi CCI* under her belt with Thai into 2 star at Sydney with him.
|Gemma rides her own Prado to take out 7th place at Denman. Prado has been a fabulous purchase for Gemma, he has a great disposition and tries really hard every ride. A rare quality . We hope to see Prado in 2 star very shortly:)
The week after Denman Stuart and Gemma head to QUIRINDI - with a cold snap over the weekend everyone including horses/riders/officials froze!!
Stuart taking a catch ride on Shane Rose's horse "Biscuit" Shane still recovering after a terrible fall which put him out of action for many weeks. Get well Shane we all miss you:)
Both of Stuarts rides Carl and Biscuit in the CCI** performing well to take out 1st and 2nd.
|QUIRINDI was certainly an event that tested most. Mainly the elements- The total FREEZE which brought out the winter garments, head to toe. The event was very well run and the cross course rode very smoothly however the ground effected with the frost. Stuart took Pluto and Anna out to start up their campaign towards Adelaide - not sure how Anna and Pluto felt about this being the right choice! Great to have them back at comps- Looking forward to the next few months with some great events for them: Sydney, Equestriad, Goulburn then Adelaide.|
|NEWS FLASH Stuart and Shane take a short trip to RIO for the test event ( AUG)
