I had heard a lot about the excellent facilities at Magna Racino, which is located about 30km from the centre of Vienna in Austria, and it was everything that I imagined and more. Owned by Frank Stronach, the hugely successful Austrian-Canadian businessman who says that horses are his passion, this purpose built horse show centre is by far the best I have ever seen. There is a racetrack on the grounds and acres of hacking and paddocks plus indoor and outdoor facilities that make this special venue somewhat of a horse haven!
The show went extremely well for me and my riders (see news). Next weekend is the final of the Spring Tour where a car is on offer to the winner of the Grand Prix. So needless to say - we will be trying!

I'm building up a nice string of horses again that I can take to the 5 star events, starting with the Global tour in Wiesbaden in 3 weeks’ time.
