Barroca D'alva

Vuma Champions Heartbreak Hill and Paul Hart, achieved their goal of qualifying for the 2012 Olympics, this past weekend! Competing in the three star event at Barroca D'alva in Portugal.

The daunting Cross country course was 3626 metres long with a total of 24 jumps. Paul was very positive, Harry went superbly and they were clear in their jumping. Unfortunately, a small error incurred them a few time faults.

Only 30 of the original 48 entries made it through to the show-jumping on Sunday. Unfortunately, Paul and Harry had two poles down but have qualified for the Olympics and earned valuable points for their international ranking.

The Vuma Team wish Paul and Harry every success in their European quest and we will be watching every step as they fly the South African flag!

Dominique's launchpad to the World Equestrian Games, Kentucky 2010

At Vuma, we revel in the successes of our customers and their horses and take personal pride in all of their achievements.

Thus it was with great delight that we learnt of Dominique Tardin’s long-listing for the World Equestrian Games for Dressage.

Her horses Don de Niro and Wenzel R are currently in quarantine in Cape Town, preparing to leave for Europe. We had to ensure that they had enough Vuma stock to send with them for the early part of their stay and will make special arrangements to ensure that they have enough feed for the duration of their quarantine.

Dom has a Grand Prix horse, called Vienna in Europe which she will be riding there, in preparation for the WEG. She competed on Vienna at the Swiss Champs at the end of June where she received excellent marks from the international and Olympic judges and was placed seventh overall.

She will also be competing on Don de Niro, as her back-up horse and Wenzel R at the lower levels.

Watch this space, as we keep you up to date on their progress towards WEG and Olympics 2012.

We are so proud to be part of your achievements!
