Our tribute to the wonderful Avebury who is aiming for a 4 timer in the 3 star in July at Barbury. Can he & Andrew Nicholson do it?
Posted by Barbury International Horse Trials on Wednesday, June 24, 2015
Barbury International is approaching July 9-12, and Andrew Nicholson and his veteran partner, Avebury, are aiming for a mind blowing fourth win in a row this year. Evidently, ths 15-year-old gelding owned by Andrew and Mark and Rosemary Barlow prefers to win events in hat trick form: he’s won Burghley three years running as well as the CIC3* at Barbury.
Andrew says that Avebury likes the atmosphere at Barbury, with its location close to home and throngs of cheering spectators. If there was ever a horse that preferred certain events more than others, it’s this one. Now, he’ll be aiming for the CIC3* again this year in his first FEI competition since (winning) Burghley last fall.
The entry list is chock full of superstars and up and comers this year, so Andrew and Avebury have their work cut out for them. You can view the full entry list, which is currently 124 strong, here. What do you think, EN? Can Avebury pull off a four-peat?
