- Cian O'Connor wins the Welcome Stake Grand Prix at Live Oak International aboard Carolus Z
Last weekend I travelled north to Live Oak Estate in Ocala, where they were hosting an international show with driving and jumping taking place. The show is run by Chester Weber and his family. Chester is a world class international four in hand competitor and will be aiming for WEG this summer. This show was run by horse people for horse people, and the competition was held on a beautiful grass arena, which was a welcome change.
I brought Quidam's Cherie and Carolus Z, who jumped great (see news) and ended up winning the leading rider award, which was nice. This week we are back in Wellington for the final week. Nikki has three horses to compete and I'm going to aim Quidam's Cherie at Saturday night's $500,000 Grand Finale!
Check back next week for more news.
