Trailrace are super excited to be supporting Billy and "Oaks Redwood" aka Basil (owned by the Tucker family) on their amazing adventure and in particular their representation on the Australian Show Jumping Team at the World Equestrian Games (WEG) in September 2018!
Billy and Basil have had a relatively short time together, but in just a little over 12 months, they have had a comprehensive journey so far!
Earlier this year, they received a wild card draw for the Longines Masters event in Hong Kong where they managed to place consistently in the top 10 in all the events they entered. They then went onto Europe to be based in The Netherlands and competed successfully at prestigious events including Germany, France and Belgium, ultimately qualifying them for the WEG.
The WEG showjumping starts Wednesday 19th and goes till Monday 24th September 2018. Here's the timing for reference:
Wednesday Sept 19 at 11:00pm – Team & Individual First Competition – Speed (Session 1)
Thursday Sept 20 at 3:30am – Team & Individual First Competition – Speed (Session 2)
Thursday Sept 20 at 11:00pm – Team & Individual Second Competition – Round 1 (Session 1)
Friday Sept 21 at 3.30am – Team & Individual Second Competition – Round 1 (Session 2)
Saturday Sept 22 at 3.30am – Team & Individual Second Competition – Round 2
At Conclusion – Team Medal Ceremony
We're hoping that the weather shines brightly upon Billy and the Australian Team!
Trailrace are delighted to watch Billy riding Basil in the Equipe EK26 jump saddle and Equipe bridles whilst wearing Cavalleria Toscana clothing, Tucci Italian Riding boots and Mattes saddle pads to ensure the utmost comfort for both horse and rider.
