RESCHEDULED – Ashford Farm Friends for Charity event

Unfortunately, we will have to reschedule the charity event and training show due to the bad weather we’ve had and are still expecting.

We would’ve loved to welcome everyone on the 10th of August but since our meadows have had to endure a lot of rain, we cannot guarantee a perfect warm-up arena and we foresee some issues with the truck parking.

Therefor we are rescheduling the event to a later date. Hopefully at the end of August or at the beginning of September. Please keep an eye out on our social channels for a new invitation because you are all still very much invited, and we hope to welcome you soon!

Please note if you’ve already made your payment via Equipe your money will be refunded a.s.a.p.

Victory in Grand Prix of Budapest and Nations Cup

The CSIO-W in Budapest will go down in memory for our team as one of the most successful shows in history of our stable. With three wins in a row by Jana Wargers one of which for het home country Germany, we could not be happier with how Limbridge and Chacco’s Lady 2 jumped.

The Longines EEF Nations Cup of Budapest was the first high of the show in Hungary. Together with her compatriots Jana and Limbridge (by Limbus) managed to keep the faults to a minimum over both rounds and were the only team to have the penalty score of zero, earning them the win in this three-star Nations Cup.

On Saturday Jana had another horse in top form. In the 1.45m Chacco’s Lady 2 (by Chacco-Blue) jumped a fantastic double clear and finished in the fastest time – ex aequo – with Sophie Hinners. The German ladies shared the win in this Grand Prix qualification class.

On Sunday Jana scored a hat-trick by landing her third victory in a row! Limbridge was on top of his game and jumped a double clear in the 1.50 Grand Prix of CSIO-W Budapest. The pair finished the jump-off with half a second to spare on the clock, concluding a fantastic show for our team.
