Barbury International Horse Trials 2019

Words & Photos by Julian Portch

2019 provided nice weather and great competition for the Barbury International Horse Trials. In the the three International Classes, Andrew Nicholson (NZL) had two wins. One on AS IS in the CCI-S3* Section B and the other on SWALLOW SPRINGS in the CCI-S4*. Piggy French (GBR) on BROOKFIELD QUALITY took the win in the CCI-S3* Section A and second place in the CCI-S3* Section B. Just one point separated the top three place in the CCI-S3* Section A and 1.4 points  the CCI-S3* Section B.


For those of you that haven't been to Barbury for a while, the ice cream van, located beside the main water complex on the XC course, is a real bonus for spectators.
