Just Kidding Nabs Second on 4* Debut
Amanda Pottinger knows that finishing second in her first CCI4* competition is nothing to sneeze about . . . but what does irk her is that she and Just Kidding had four rails down in the showjumping. “That upsets me,” she said. Amanda lost her hard-won overnight lead after a very challenging cross country at the Mitsubishi Motors Australian International 3 Day Event in Adelaide after adding 16 penalties in the showjumping to finish on 63.2 penalty points. Hazel Shannon and Willingapark Clifford who were second coming into the all-important showjumping, added just eight to finish the competition on 59.9.

To Whom it may concern,
I INSERT NAME HERE, am in favour of banning fireworks in the general public, leaving them for use by licensed professionals only.

Xanthe Dunford cried when she was told she is the winner of such amazing products. She has had a bit of a rough journey with her horse so far. After a very bad fall a while ago resulting in 9 months off riding, Xanthe and her horse are only just working as a team, so this win has come at a great time and is even more special.
Xanthe and her very supportive mum are still in shock and can’t quite process this wonderful news. Xanthe, after entering the competition herself, tried to encourage her mum to enter too to give her a double chance and her mum said, “Forget it. You have absolutely no way of winning,....
