Pedigree ALLSTAR B



2 de mayo.-  VIDEOS DE LA 1ª INSPECCIÓN DE CABALLOS EN BADMINTON 2018. La representación española en este año, como se sabe, en el CCI**** está formada por JUNCO CP (angloárabe sevillano de 2004, Ebene de Montagne x-Fougeus x-Dionysos x / Nilgaut x-Colorado x-Kephir x / Massondo x) con Carlos Díaz. En el día de hoy -al igual que los demás participantes- ha sido aceptado. El viernes hará la doma aproximadamente a las 11.34 hora local. Los otros dos caballos nacionales competirán: NEREO (CDE ganador el año pasado con el neocelandés A. Nicholson ) el jueves a las 9.54 y KAISER HDB (angloárabe sevillano con el francés R. Prud´Hon) el viernes a las 10.34. Es el completo más significativo del mundo y ofrecemos en link para verlo en directo

M. Jung / SAM -como es habitual- realiza también buena doma obteniendo tres notas de 9 (parada, parada y saludo al final y jinete). Como se ve la diferencia es pequeñísima (menos de 1 punto).


De los 39 participantes 16 bajan de los 30 puntos.


El Caballo de Deporte Español (CDE) NEREO con el neocelandés A. Nicholson (defienden título) es 18º con 30.3 en una doma no especialmente buena con varias notas de 6 y hasta un 4 de S. Baxter en un cambio. Aun así la diferencia con el conjunto líder no es muy grande al ser de 6.4 puntos.




Nota de prensa



Ros Canter, the penultimate rider into the arena at the end of the first day of dressage at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials, put in a polished, personal best performance to leap into the lead with her partner of six years, Allstar B.

The combination, who finished fifth here last year, scored 23.9 – more than 76%. They earned several 9s, including for Ros’s riding.

“He’s very consistent in this phase and really laps up the atmosphere,” said Ros, who was part of the gold medal-winning team at last year’s senior European Championships. “He has the most amazing mind and he allows me to ride him in a way that creates a lovely picture for people to look at. I work very closely with Ian Woodhead, who trains me, and two-and-a-half weeks ago I sent him a video of me riding through the test on Allstar B and asked him what he thought. He told me it looked brilliant and that I shouldn’t practise it any more. It made me nervous not spending all last week going through the movements, but Ian was right; so long as I have Allstar B in the right uphill balance, the fancy bits look after themselves.”

The 2016 winners, Germany’s Michael Jung and Biosthetique Sam FBW, put in their usual workmanlike, mistake-free performance to score 24.7 and lie second.

“He doesn’t like soft ground for dressage, but he knows me, I know him and we both know what to do,” said Michael, who had already indicated before today that this would be Sam’s final Mitsubishi Motors Badminton.

Making it a truly international line-up, Japan’s Yoshi Oiwa and The Duke Of Cavan, the final pair to canter down the centreline this afternoon, scored 24.9 to fill third spot.

Yoshi, for whom this is a third Badminton, explained that his test preparation today had not quite gone to plan as The Duke Of Cavan was chased by a dog in the park at lunchtime.

“It upset him a bit and I thought he would be tense in the dressage, but he was actually very quiet,” said Yoshi, who credited his “scary German trainer”, Dirk Schrade, with whom he has been based for the last nine years, for his performance. “If I don’t do what Dirk tells me he gets upset,” smiled Yoshi, tongue in cheek.

Lance Bradley, Vice Chairman at Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, commented at the end of today’s action: “You can feel the excitement in the air here at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials, and there is much more to come. We have the very best international riders in the world competing here over the four days and we can’t wait to see who comes out on top!”

The dressage continues tomorrow with the second half of the field. First into the arena at 9.30am will be Izzy Taylor and Perfect Stranger.
