ROYAL WINDSOR HORSE SHOW REPORT

The wet weather didn’t dampen the spirits of the spectators today at Royal

Windsor Horse Show who were treated to an array of displays, including a

winning performance from Olympic team gold medalist and Show favourite

Team GBR’s Carl Hester.

 

DRESSAGE: CARL HESTER ON TOP FORM

Carl Hester and Nip Tuck members what side effect of quoting prozac stopping prozac after 5 weeks fluoxetine 4 dollar list buy prozac online canadian pharmacy hcl 20 mg effects. hcl 80 mg 20 of the British silver medal team at

the World Equestrian Games last year, led from the front to win the

international grand prix at Royal Windsor Horse Show.

It was the third international win for the pair this year, albeit their

score fell just half a percent short of their personal best scored in

Barcelona in March.

“It felt like a personal best to me,” said Carl who owns the Dutch-bred

gelding with Jane de la Mare. “I think that is the best he’s ever gone.

Last year here he felt so green and this year he felt like a really

experienced horse.”

The pair are now aiming for this year’s British team for the European

Championships to be held in Aachen, Germany. “I was hoping that the

‘up and comings’ might get a go – we are getting more depth and riders

available as tonight showed but I will be available if they need me” said

Carl who trained almost half of the 12 strong class.

His pupil Fiona Bigwood came closest with her Danish-bred mare Atterupgaards

Orthilia who ably demonstrated great natural lift in piaffe and passage.

Fiona acquired the mare 18 months ago then last April suffered a serious

fall that left her out of the saddle for six months.

“I had to put all the horses on the back-burner,” said Fiona who too was

just short of a PB with the mare. Orthilia however was the first horse she

got back on after her accident.

“She is the kindest horse ever – I love riding her and love her to bits,” said

Fiona who is also aiming for a place on the team this year having won team

silver at the WEG in 2010.

“My main goal is to try for a place for Rio next year but to be honest I take

every show as it comes” she said.

Dutch rider Katja Gevers and her 15-year-old gelding Thriller took third place

with their best score so far this year while British rider Alice Oppenheimer and

Headmore Delegate, took fourth with a zyban price new zealand zyban online score just short of 70%.

“I would have liked to have made the 70% but he was a good boy and the

spotlights do make it quite a spooky arena,” said Alice who trains the

British-bred Delegate with Olympic gold medallist Charlotte Dujardin.

to play for on Saturday which will make an exciting day for spectators.”
