CCI/CIC Jersey Fresh Three Day Event, Allentown, New Jersey, USA  may 10–13

Colombo (SWB born 1994 by Eighty Eight Keys xx out of Colette by Concarneau-Le Capricore xx, breeder Tord Bonde) and Selena O’Hanlon (CAN) placed 3d in CCI***. “Our dressage was great,” said O’Hanlon who has been working with Canadian Olympic bronze medalist Gina Smith when she has been at home between competitions. “We have been turning up the volume for each test we have done recently. I’m sorry that I lost a second place finish by adding two jumping time penalties, but he was the only horse to not have any jumping faults on both cross country and show jumping, so I’m very pleased.”

Brisbane back in training at Swedish Mattias Jansson
Monday, 07 May 2012 00:00

Last year British Emma Hindle showed her new Olympic hope the now 11-year-old former stallion Brisbane 1081 (SWB by Briar out of Terra Nova (F2) 23042 by Amiral-Idealist, breeder Anders Larsson family). Unfortunately, we did only see the combination a few times.

The collaboration between Brisbane and Hindle has not been top successful, and therefore Swedish Mattias Jansson has been visited at Hindles barn to train Brisbane. Brisbane was educated and trained by Jansson in Sweden before he was sold to Switzerland. Brisbane was approved in Sweden with 9´s for gaites and 10´s by the testriders.

Brisbane is now, however, moved back to Sweden by Mattias Jansson, who this past weekend was placed 2d in Grand Prix at CDN Dagstorporten.
