Queensland Eventers ready to take on the world!

It is a very exciting few weeks ahead for Queensland eventers based in Europe as Houghton International and Luhmuhlen 4* approach.

The Australian Eventing team has been finalised for the CICO3* Nations Cup at Saracen Horse Feeds Houghton International Horse Trials, (GBR) from 25-28 May 2017.

The team will consist of Qld husband and wife team Kevin & Emma McNab.

Born in Far North Queensland, Kevin completed his education at The Kooralbyn International School before starting Kelecyn Equestrian at Tamborine. Kevin will be riding a horse he campaigned as a young horse in Australia, Casperelli. Casperelli was exported with Kevin to England in 2012 where the successful partnership has continued. Kevin competed Casperelli at Houghton Hall in 2015 where the combination finished on their dressage score of 48.2.

Emma was born and raised in Chinchilla and was a regular competitor at interschool events where she competed for The Glennie School. A talented young rider, Emma moved to Tamborine after finishing school to base at Kelecyn Equestrian and progress to 4* level. After relocating to England Emma picked up the ride on the young Fernhill Tabasco which she has produced to 3* with great success.

More on the Australian Team 

After Houghton International, Emma and Kevin will head to Luhumulen International Horse Trials.

Here Kevin has entered Casperelli in his first 4* competition, while Emma will ride Fernhill Tabasco in the CIC3* class.

At this event Kevin and Emma will be joined by fellow Queenslander Isabel English. Isabel will be riding her long-time partner Feldale Mouse as the combination have their first 4* start on foreign soil.

A graduate of Canterbury College, Isabel has been competing on Feldale Mouse since 2009 and together they have achieved two top ten placings at Adelaide 4* and have represented Australia on the Trans Tasman team on two separate occasions.
