AES Horses Excel at Liverpool

It has been a fantastic show for AES riders, owners and breeders at Liverpool this year, with exciting wins every day!

The show started with a superb performance by James Smith who won Friday's CSI4* Two Phases 1.40m with Elizabeth Robson's gelding Simply Splendid (Ustinov x Cavalier), bred by C.M. Robson.

Saturday saw a spectacular win in the CSI4* 1.50m class for Harriett Nuttall with Rupert Nuttall's Galway Bay Jed (Romanov x Lux) who was bred by Justin Burke. The pair beat a strong line up of competitors from across the world in a great triumph for British breeding and show jumping. 

On Sunday, we witnessed the return of the great Top Dollar (Dollar du Mourier x Darco) who carried Matthew Sampson to an exciting victory in the Puissance. This fabulous horse, owned by John and Laura Renwick and bred by Sue Clark is a great favourite with the British public, and it is wonderful to see him continue at the top of his game. 

The show finished last night with a truly magnificent Finale in the 1.60m Grand Prix, which saw AES riders and horses occupy 7 out of the top 8 placings! Top placed AES registered horse was again Galway Bay Jed with Harriett Nuttall, who had a fantastic show at Liverpool and who came second just behind Shane Breen with the AES Elite graded stallion Golden Hawk (Vigo d'Arsouilles x Chin Chin). Just over half a second separated the pair from Will Funnel with Billy Diamo (Cevin Z x Andiamo) in third place. It was great to see further AES favourites with Holly Smith and Hearts Destiny (Heart Throb x Rabino) in 5th place, Billy Twomey and Kimba Flamenco (Je t'Aime Flamenco x Heartbreaker) in 6th, John Whitaker and JB's Hot Stuff (Locarno x Cavalier Royale) in 7th and Anthony Condon and Sfs Aristio (Arko III x Voltaire) in 8th position.

Congratulations to all, and to Nina Barbour for organising yet another fantastic show at Liverpool!
