Barbury Castle


Always an owner and rider's favorite event, it's such an occasion with a beautiful course and so well run.
Shannondale Sparky contested in the Novice and Creeslough in the ROR Intermediate Novice.

Shannondale Sparky did a nice test but did not score his usual low mark, so a little adrift after this phase, but then jumped a fantastic double clear just adding a few time faults to his score. Feeling fantastic around the bold track it will have set him up well for the forthcoming events.

Creeslough scored a respectable 33.5 in his intermediate test and was well in contention, following this up with a double clear and finishing on his dressage score. He was placed 3rd in this competitive class open to any level or retrained racehorse.

Following this he was invited back to jump as part of the top 10 on the Sunday of Barbury Castle international for big money.
He kept up his great form and jumped a perfect clear to remain 3rd behind Paul Tapner and Richard Waygood.
Ginny could not have been more pleased with him, he will now head to Wilton intermediate followed by Hartpury CCI**.
