After so much rain yesterday it was a great relief to wake up today to the most beautiful morning. The grass arenas at Sydney Equestrian Centre (SIEC) held up incredibly well and for the competitors that chose to ‘stick it out’ they were rewarded with perfect conditions for jumping with a wonderful surface, a slight cool breeze and bright blue skies.
The day kicked off with the 1.30 – 1.35m class – an addition to the program to provide an alternative to the Grand Prix which unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the conditions yesterday. With only three competitors, it was a small class but still required a jump-off and in the end it was Amanda Madigan and Diamond B Vivienne who prevailed with their usual style to take the win.
