Badminton Horse Trials & Chepstow 2*


It has been a busy few weeks for all of us at Davison Equestrian with Chepstow 2*, Badminton Horse Trials and Windsor Horse show next week!

Joe and Vennoot had a successful show at Chepstow International 2* with a win in the big tour and great rounds from the younger horses.
Below is an excerpt from British Showjumping press release.

Joe Davison claimed the big tour two phase with recent acquisition Vennoot II, a 12-year-old owned by Gillian Davison who will be aimed at Nations Cup teams and world ranking classes. “He needed plenty of flatwork, but he’s got a good brain and wants to learn” said Joe, who can rely on his father, dressage supremo Richard Davison, for tips.
