2020 FEI Challenge

After the struggle with covid-19 this year and not too many shows… Sunny Park Stables has had a really great run…

Laurin McLaren winning the FEI Gold tour on her horse Locarno Nandi securing her place to go and compete in the Final in 2021 in Jakarta Indonesia – Exciting times

There are three competitions ridden all over the world, the same jumping tracks in the same sized arena with exactly the same fences, distances etc. The first round in each Leg is just to stay clear i.e no penalties and the second round the altered track is measured on time including penalties.

The riders each nominate the horse they wish to put as their FEI horse and carry their penalties and time through all three Legs, the best 2 of the 3 scores count.

Laurin had two 2nd places and 1st place in the final, all clear rounds, she was one of 2 riders in SA that jumped all clears so Laurin cinched her place in Jakarta with this final amazing win.

Nicola and Laurin will travel to Jakarta for her to compete in the final once we know dates we will keep you posted… Exciting times ahead
