Saffron Performance Horses at Sydney CDI
The 2015 Sydney CDI was run on the first weekend of May at the Sydney International Equestrian Centre by Dressage NSW. SPH Sonata Hit and SPH Renaissance both attended the event with Rodney Martin in the saddle bringing home some great results.
This was SPH Renaissance’s first Sydney CDI and she competed in the 4 Year Old Young Horse Champion. She won the first round and was coming a close second in the second round but took out the Champion with a combined score of 8.81 from the judges and a rideability score of 9.5, the highest out of all the champion horses!
SPH Sonata Hit competed in the Prix St George on Thursday and the Intermediate I on Friday. He placed fifth with a score of 67.24% in the Prix St George and was only 0.29 points from first place in the Intermediate I with a score of 69.74 to take 2nd place.
Thank you to Rodney and Matthew for looking after our horses so well and achieving more great results with our home bred performance horses.
