Congratulations Stuart Tinney


 Thursday, 7 August 2014


Yesterday, it was announced that Stuart will represent Australia's eventing team at the World Equestrian Games in Normandy.

Congratulations to Stuart on his selection. Olympic gold medallist Stuart Tinney, and his mount Pluto Mio. Stuart is no stranger to international competition having competed at three World Equestrian Games (1998, 2002, 2010) and two Olympic Games, including Sydney 2000 where he was part of the Australian team that won gold (also Athens 2004).

Stuart was named as the replacement combination for Sonja Johnson and Parkiarrup Illicit Liaison, after Sonja’s withdrawal from the team last week due to a minor injury to her horse. Our thoughts are with Sonja, and wish Parkiarrup Illicit Liaison a fast and good recovery.
