Britain’s current and future stars were out in force for the Addington High Profile Show in Buckinghamshire on 16 – 18 January 2015. The first competition of the year for many, Addington received record numbers in entries for many of their classes – there were 39 starters in Friday’s Prix St Georges.

South Yorkshire based rider and trainer, Becky Moody was the big winner over the weekend. Combined with her own 8-year old Dutch warmblood gelding Carinsio (by Painted Black), she topped the leader board in all three classes entered. The dynamic duo claimed both PSGs with scores of 74.07% and 74.38% and made their debut at inter I, winning Friday’s class with a whopping 70.70%.

After moving to the UK last summer, Danish rider Sune Hansen chose the High Profile show to make his British dressage debut. Riding his own 9-year old Danish gelding, Carso’Ni (by Carson Ask x Leendert) in the second inter I of the competition, Sune scored 74.03% to take first place. Becky Moody and Davina Parker’s 15 year old KWPN mare, Tirsa took second with 71.44%.

Sune continued his run of success into the inter II with his second ride, 12-year-old Danish gelding, Charmeur SH (by Crelido). Scoring a solid 70.04%, the pair narrowly claimed the top spot ahead of second placed former young rider Olivia Oakeley on her senior debut with her own 14-year-old Dimaggio gelding Donna Summer (69.82%).

It was also a weekend of firsts for Olivia and her long-term partner, Rio – as his friends call him – who, at the last minute, grew extremely courageous and withdrew from the inter I to contest in the grand prix, their first senior GP. Scoring an impressive 65.06%, the pair earned fourth place in a strong class – topped by Alice Oppenheimer with her mother’s 12-year-old Dimaggio gelding, Headmore Delegate who scored 70.16%, four percent above second placed Anna Ross and Jane Sewell’s 14-year-old De Niro mare, Die Callas (66.00%) who later went on to win the grand prix special with 68.33%.

Phoebe Peters led the way for the U25s, achieving the highest score of the youngsters over the course of the weekend. Riding Charlotte Dujardin’s six year old British-bred pony gelding Cruz III, she held off the competition in the pony team test to take first, scoring 73.59%.

Sisters, Ruth and Clare Hole dominated the individual tests. Scoring 68.90%, 13-year-old Clare and Maisie Scruton’s 14-year-old Dutch-bred stallion Rembrandt DDH claimed the top spot in the pony individual test whilst 15-year-old Ruth took first place in the junior individual with Rachel Murray’s 12-year-old Gribaldi gelding, Winnetou GEP on a score of 68.55%.
