Oliver had a good outing at one of his favourite events last weekend. Riding Sir John Peace’s Hialisca De Takam, a six-year-old mare by Iolisco De Quinhon, Oliver led the dressage with a mark of 24.1, rolled one showjumping pole and went clear inside the time across country to finish on 28.1. He was also second on Fargann Des Loges, an eight-year-old Aristide De Hus gelding also owned by Sir John Peace. Oliver sourced both horses from France last autumn.
Caunton First Class and Crazy du Loir finished 2nd and 8th in the 3*-S whilst Be Cooley also finished the 2* in the top 20 and Finley du Loir snatched 2nd in the OI.
King Edward of Barrells, Melody Chillout, Leedaun Guy and On Song then took second, second, fourth and eighth in the BE100 – all finishing on their dressage scores. A good weekend at work.
