The placings moved again after the last day of competition. Shane Rose on Shanghai Joe moved from third after cross-country to win after the Show jumping. Sonja had a mixed day incurring 8 penalties in her showjumping round on Parkiarrup Illicit Liaison and managing to hang onto second place. On her other ride for the weekend Belfast Mojito they managed one of the only two clear showjumping rounds for the day to move from fourth after cross country to third place.

To prove that whilst dressage is important but the jumping phases are crucial, Sonja Johnson on Belfast Mojito were originally coming eighteenth after dressage. The managed one of the only two double clear rounds for the weekend, the other being Shane Rose on Shanghai Joe.

Western Australia’s Gabrielle Pither and her horse Max Almighty enjoyed two victory laps in quick succession at the Melbourne International Horse Trials (MIHT) after winning the  CCI2* competition on a score of 46.11 and as part of the winning Australian team in the Oceania Eventing Championships for Young Riders.

Gabrielle Pither said that riding in the Melbourne International Horse Trials has been amazing especially with Australia’s top riders competing at the event.

“To come away with two rugs and two situations like that was a little bit surreal but amazing.

“I didn’t know what to expect when I came over here because I hadn’t seen a lot of the competitors or anything of the courses, but Max Almighty pulled up just awesome, I couldn’t ask for a better horse today.

“The whole team situation was fantastic, we really got a chance to get to know each other and our competitors from New Zealand. Prue Barrett  and Michelle Graham have been incredible,” said Pither.

The top three spots in the CCI2* competition have not budged from day one with strong dressage performances and near perfect cross-country and showjumping scores keeping the top three firmly in their places. Will Enzinger and Wenlock Aquifer took second and Teegan Ashby and Rockingham No Reason third.

CCI 1 star

After leading the field from start-to-finish Will Enzinger has secured first and third place in the CCI1* competition  on his rides Pahia Wilhelm and Bellhaven Sanskrit  in this year’s Melbourne International Horse Trials (MIHT) at Werribee Park.

Enzinger said it had been a fantastic event and congratulated organisers for moving the dressage and showjumping phases into the open-air Polaris Arena.

“I think we are going to see lots more confident rounds out there in the open-air arena and better showjumping results because of that.

“Bellhaven Sanskrit just really wanted to get in the air and do the job giving me the confidence to get out there and be positive with Pahia Wilhelm.

“It was a bit messy but I still felt confident to go round,” said Mr Enzinger.

Megan Jones took second on Kirby Park Impress after clear rounds in cross-country and showjumping.
