EVENTING: Watson and Kennedy impress at Luhmühlen five-star horse trials
on 17 June 2019
Sam Watson and Tony Kennedy were just out of the top 10 in German showpiece

TWO Irish riders recorded notable results in the Longines CCI5*-L at Luhmühlen Horse Trials in Germany at the weekend, with Sam Watson finishing 12th, just ahead of Tony Kennedy in 13th. CCI5*-L is the highest level of international eventing, and Luhmühlen attracted a world class field of horses and riders.

Watson, riding the Vahe Bogossian-owned Irish Sport Horse Tullabeg Flamenco was in 13th after Dressage on a score of 32.50 and jumped clear Cross Country adding just 9.6 time penalties. They lowered a single fence in the final Show Jumping phase to finish on a score of 46.10 in 12th position.

Kennedy was riding the Con Kennedy-owned Irish Sport Horse Westeria Lane and was in 22nd after dressage with a score of 37.10. A clear cross-country round with just six time penalties saw them climb to ninth place. They finished with one fence down in the show jumping phase to leave them on a score of 47.90 in 13th place.

Victory in Luhmühlen went to New Zealand’s Tim Price with Ascona M with a final score of 31.40, chased by Tom McEwen (GBR) with Figaro van het Broekxhof (33.5) and Alex Bragg (GBR) with Zagreb (33.7).
