    Luhmuhlen 4*

    Quick reply But if we look at the key Aussie 3day results this year, they aren't that great are they - Sam Griffiths won Saumur, but that's about it really. (Prepares to be shot down for missing several key riders/results!!! - sorry in advance of this!!). Matt Ryan was the best of them at...

    Luhmuhlen 4*

    Does seem a bit bonkers really! Before all this came up, I'd have said that Lucinda, Clayton, Andrew Hoy and Matt Ryan would be certs for the team and the final slot would go to someone else - Sam Griffiths has had good form winning Saumur, but not that sure about any other Aussie riders off...

    Luhmuhlen 4*

    I noticed that too! Can't believe they have to run her - if any horse and rider have done enough and deserve to go to the Olympics, its that pair!

    Following on from this, looks like Lucinda F has Brit running at Lumuhlen CCI****. Have to say that if any horse/rider has proved themselves its got to be this pair!!!

    When you BE at so & so level......What do you BSJA???

    Boekelo 3*

    Looks a very decent line-up with some cracking horses in it. Personal fave is Miners Frolic (my old horse was his half brother - not quite as good though !!) Anyone know why JP Sheffield has the ride on Cashel Bay? Mary King normally rides him and usually does a fab job on him. Is this a...

    Quicky update...

    Hi Sounds like Snoops was a star and prefers the less is more approach to his tack! Sounds a tough course for BN though - although good for Snoop's education. So pleased to hear all went well and fingers crossed for next week's PN. Take care. T
