The team talk all things Luhmühlen and the big result for #girlpower with women sweeping the entire top five. Then it’s on to Arville for Leg 3 of Event Rider Masters in Belgium. Upsilon and Cillnabradden Evo will face off yet again. Will one prevail, or will another horse play spoiler to top the podium?
With the Germany heavy-hitters competing in the CIC3*, the CCI4* is wide open for another nation to scoop the win. Will the incredibly strong British contingent taste victory? There is much to discuss!
Diarm returns to the fold following a water-logged honeymoon on the Amalfi Coast, and as expected the team are absolutely out of control. On tap in this episode: a stats-packed review of Tattersalls, a preview of all three classes at Bramham, plus key contenders to watch at Bromont in Canada.
We talk all things Ireland in this episode! There is a recap of Diarm’s epic wedding in West Cork (which the team are still recovering from!) plus a preview of what’s to come at one of the world’s biggest events at Tattersalls. The team also look at weekend action around the world at Houghton, Saumur, and Barbarowko.
Only one person managed the elusive FOD (finish on dressage score) throughout the weekend and he did it twice – hats off to Ludwig Svennerstal.
With Houghton featuring a number of Luhmuhlen bound horses this weekend as well the team look forward to an excellent couple of weeks of competition. Plus find out which superstar has secured WEG qualification.
It’s a quick turnaround to Leg 2 at Internationales Wiesbadener PfingstTurnier. The entire team agree on the winner, but there is plenty to play for in Germany.
Watch the action live from Friday on www.eventridermasters.tv – and don’t forget to leave us a review on iTunes!
Leg 1 of the 2018 Event Rider Masters series will take place at The Dodson & Horrell Chatsworth International Horse Trials. This will be the third year running that Chatsworth will play host to the opening leg of the new Event Rider Masters season.
Diarm & Nicole pick some winners. All about speed at this venue.
With one of the biggest weeks in the Eventing calendar coming up the team talk all things Badminton and pick out the ones to watch in the week ahead!
It’s an episode jam packed with stats, discussion and the odd impression – there’s something about the magic of Badminton that sends everyone a little bit silly….it really is better than Christmas!
The team also look back on a vintage Kentucky in which Oliver Townend took over as World No 1 and sets himself up for a shot at the Rolex Grand Slam this weekend. Just another thing to keep us all on the edge of our seats over the weekend!
Whether you are travelling to the Gloucestershire venue or following online then make sure you stay tuned to EquiRatings and the Eventing Podcast on social media to keep up to date with all of the latest Badminton news and gossip!
This weekend Michael Jung’s wonder mare fischerRocana FST bids to make history by becoming the first horse to win four 4* titles at the same venue. She also aims to move into a clear second position in all time 4* titles behind stablemate La Biosthetique Sam FBW who heads to Badminton next week. Can she do it? The team discuss her (very strong) chances and who the key challengers will be to stand in her way.
With the first 4* of the year also being the first opportunity for us to see the new FEI Dressage Scoring System in place at this level, the importance of the FOD (Finish on Dressage Score) is paramount but who will be able to do it?
Jenni champions the American contenders, Nicole backs the Brit (surprise!) and finds an interesting piece of Nobilis 18 trivia while the boys give us the key stats we need ahead of the weekend’s competition.
