Georgia Tame’s jet-set showjumper vlog: generally I’ve to pinch myself
It seems like we’re again the place all of it started. It my very first vlog for H&H I talked to you about my superb expertise out in Dubai with the Breen Workforce driving for Workforce Z7. Throw it ahead a yr and I’m blissful to say we’re again in sunny Dubai!
Rather a lot has occurred in January to date. The horses left England simply earlier than the New 12 months, and spent just a few days in quarantine earlier than travelling to the fabulous Z7 stables in Zabeel in Dubai. I flew out with tremendous grooms Leo and Ludo (who makes a cameo within the video — blink and also you may miss it), to fulfill the horses the opposite finish, the place we had been joined by DLS Showjumping’s David Simpson, Breen Sport Horses’ Trevor Breen, and naturally Shane.
We had been straight into the competing combine with the Abu Dhabi CSI4*-W, a World Cup present, on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi. We’re so fortunate that each one the reveals on the UAE tour are inside two hours of the Z7 stables, so as soon as the horses arrive in Dubai they spend little or no time travelling.
On the primary day, Z7 Caretina jumped the 1.40m for simply 4 faults and Z7 Cordanos V jumped the 1.45m. Z7 Caretina is simply eight and is simply stepping up from younger horse lessons, so it was nice to trip her in her first 1.45m Longines rating class, the place we completed fifth on day two. On the ultimate day, Z7 Cordanos V jumped a improbable spherical within the World Cup for simply 4 faults and Carentina jumped double clear within the rating class to complete fourth.
The second present was the CSI4* Al Shira’aa present, additionally proper subsequent to Abu Dhabi, however at a special showground. Cordanos jumped the rating class as his firstclass, which was a giant ask and he made a few errors, however I used to be nonetheless actually pleased with him. Money-Up then jumped clear with one time fault within the 1.40m and Z7 Canya Dance jumped within the 1.30m.
On the second day each Cordanos and Money-Up jumped the 1.50m and Canya Dance was sixth within the 1.30m.
Saturday was a really thrilling day as Abu Dhabi hosted its first ever Derby. Edward Bunn got here from Hickstead to advise on constructing the course, which was very spectacular and filled with derby fences — ditches, water, rustic rails and, in fact, the Hickstead planks — it felt similar to residence! The competitors was very quick and livid and was nice to have such an excited crowd getting behind us all as we jumped spherical.
