The 2018 Canadian show season has reached its conclusion and our Kingsfield boys made us proud to the very end.
Balintore wrapped up the year jumping a beautiful clear round in the final of the $125,000 Canadian Show Jumping Championship, one of only three horses to be able to do so. After an uncharacteristic weak round the day previous, he shot back up the ranks to take 7th overall, missing the final jump off by a single point.
In the 1.40m ring, Team Bay member Egano van het Slogenhof was on top form. In the opening round of the championship, the 14 year old Belgian warmblood was flying - an unfortunate rail in the jump off kept him just out podium position, however he settled nicely into fourth position being the fastest four faulter, completing his jump off round with four full seconds shaved off the winning time. He would not make the same error in the speed competition and was once again the fastest horse in the field to take the win. The points accrued throughout the competition were enough to take home the National Reserve Championship, his second Royal title in as many appearances.
