EVENTING AUCKLAND BRINGS YOU PUHINUI CROSS COUNTRY TRAINING DAY
The Puhinui International Three-day Event in Auckland, 9-11 December, marks the halfway stage of the year long ESNZ Eventing Super League, with competitors from throughout the country travelling long distances to contest the Honda CCI3* class, and earn the extra points on offer for the Olympic format three-day event.
Virginia Thompson is the new Puhinui Champion after taking out the Honda NZCCI3* on her horse Star Nouveau. The judges put Ginny through a few nervous moments as they calculated the final scores, as Star Nouveau had knocked two rails down and had one time fault, but she had built up enough of a lead to take out the win.
It was a drama filled cross country day at Puhinui with Virginia Thompson on Star Noveau emerging as leaders at the end of the day. The pair absolutely nailed the challenging jumps, and was the only ones to finish on their dressage score.
Aucklander Dannie Lodder was surprised to find out she was leading the field at the conclusion of the dressage phase at the Puhinui International Horse Trials as she had initially been a bit disappointed in Tomahawk II’s test.
Over 200 horses and riders from all over New Zealand are converging on Auckland this weekend to compete in the prestigious Puhinui International 3 Day Event.
The event, commencing Friday 11th of December and concluding on Sunday 13th, is held at the Puhinui Reserve, next to Auckland Airport. It is one of only two events held in New Zealand at the highest possible level of equestrian eventing. While Olympians Sir Mark Todd, Vaughn Jefferis and Australian Stuart Tinney have all had their names engraved on the trophy in previous years, none of the field in this year’s top class have ever won the trophy before.
As well as sponsoring the CCN105 class at Puhinui, Horse & Pony have also come up with some great prizes for the best dressed male and female competitors at the trot ups. This is going to be judged over both Thursday’s and Sunday’s inspections.
The cross-country course is ready to rumble and take on its’ competitors! The Puhinui media team have been keeping the new course developments under tight wraps as to not give anything away!
The hot favourite has delivered on expectations. Clarke Johnstone has not just hit the lead in the Honda New Zealand CCI***, but has done a personal best score of 39 with his white horse, Balmoral Sensation.
A quality performance from Matangi’s Clarke Johnstone on his horse Balmoral Sensation saw him finish with no additions to his personal best dressage score of 39 and be crowned Honda NZ CCI*** champion.
The good crowds enjoying the cross country day were given a treat when Clarke Johnstone on Balmoral Sensation flew around the testing course in the Honda New Zealand CCI*** for a clear round within the time.
For fun, after the Honda NZ CCI*** cross country has finished, the Equilibrium Puhinui Challenge will be held in the main arena. This a single fence high jump competition between teams of four event riders and four showjumpers.
