Mary Hanna and Boogie Woogie produce two outstanding tests to come second in the Prix St George and win the Inter 1 with an amazing score of 74.89%. Not only was this Mary’s highest international score ever, it is Australia’s highest score to date at a European International Show at that level.
Mary : I feel like I stepped into a dream world, Never did I believe I would win in such a show as Hagen. It just shows you can achieve anything with the right attitude, a great horse and a great team around you… and I really hope that this achievement inspires Aussie riders to think big. I am so thankful to Patrik and the whole team at outstanding stables, Lyndal and Malin, especially as I feel so much support.
Patrik has taken my training to a whole other level and I am really enjoying training with him and I am also really enjoying competition preparation as he really gives me the calmness and confidence to ride well. I still feel like I have to pinch myself and I am so proud of Boogie.
