Pratoni del Vivaro Show Jumping

Pratoni del Vivaro Show Jumping

Bright sunshine and Spartaco ( Sparty) breezed through his jog early this morning before jumping an immaculate clear round on grass footing that Tim described as “beautiful”.   He held onto his third place and podium spot and the best finish of his career to date.

The sunshine was out today and no doubt Pratoni did look beautiful.  It is a lovely spot and the terrain is perfect for a World Games as it will demand a true 5 star horse.  WEG will see a huge all weather arena put in for the dressage and jumping and they will run a test event there in the spring once that work has been completed.

Tim starts his end of season now…he just has the small matter of getting home! He flies out of Rome tonight whilst Sparty and Jade Roberts will start their long trek home by road courtesy of Tintin who drove them down there.  Sparty wont mind the long ride, he’s a ‘road trip’ kind of guy and will just take in the views and sleep on his feet.

It’s a superb end to the season and Tim now also has the satisfaction of having another horse qualified for WEG to join the rest of his string. Happy holidays to all!
