“I really enjoy the setting of the Turf Tour,” said Clementine Goutal following her rides on Friday. “It is always set on a beautiful field with a casual atmosphere, and riders can compete at a time that suits them without pressure. The footing stayed great throughout the day, and the course [designed by Nick Granat] left plenty of room to take risks.”
In addition to the Grand Prix, Friday’s competition in Ring 2 featured Low and Medium Schooling Jumpers, plus classes for Junior/Amateur-Owner and Child/Adult classes, including NAL Classics for both groups. Intended to act as a catalyst for the growth and development of horses and riders, the Turf Tour combines breathtaking venues with world-class amenities, consistently drawing top competitors. Week Ten of the Turf Tour will again take place on the beautiful grounds of the International Polo Club on Wednesday and Friday, March 9 and 11, 2016. Week Eleven’s jumper events will also be held at the International Polo Club, with the second day of competition being moved to Saturday to accommodate The Ridge at Wellington’s second Hunter Derby Days competition on March 18th. Starting with the USHJA $5,000 National Hunter Derby at 1:30, the event will continue with the exciting $15,000 USHJA International Derby, a nighttime class that will take place in the fantastic, oversized covered arena at Jim Brandon, setting the stage for a unique and welcoming ambiance to showcase the elegance and beauty of performance hunters.
