The opening day of the 2023 Bolesworth International started spectacularly on 14 June 2023.
Alex Bragg set off at an unbeatable pace with experienced campaigner Quindiva expertly navigating the tricky JCL Insurance Brokers Eventing Grand Prix course, set by Andrew Heffernan, taking place in the Main International Arena.
The second place prize was secured by Gemma Stevens riding Santiago Bay, with New Zealand’s Caroling Powell on Greenacres Special Cavalier rounding out the podium.
Emma Stoker and Q Seven took the win in the opening Hird & Partners 1.35m CSI3* class of the show, putting in a very fast time to narrowly take the lead by 0.12 seconds from runner-up Carmen Edwards riding Garou Pommex Z. Third place went to Annabel Shields riding Elgrando PS. Tomorrow gets serious as we see the top International riders take on the first of two qualifiers for the Cavago Grand Prix on Sunday, it’s all to play for so make sure you have your tickets!
