Just 5% of the horses that have contested the CIC3* at Barbury Castle have been 8-year-olds.
The hills and the twists and turns can catch out even the most experienced cross country horses (NB: Leonidas, Riddlemaster, 2016). So when we see a young horse head for Barbury, we always take note. This year, we saw two exceptional performances. Gemma Tattersall’s Santiago Bay and Laura Collett’s Mr Bass — two of the most exciting young horses in training at the moment were part of the the Event Rider Masters CIC3* class and both produced finishing scores amongst the best ever seen in the feature class.
