Australia has produced a sensational performance in the 3DE Eventing competition to win the silver medal at the Olympics in Hong Kong! The Germans claimed gold finishing on 166.10 penalties , Australia silver 171.20 and Great Britian bronze 185.50. Sonja and Jag looked magnificent and were the only Australian combination to go clear in the showjumping phase. Australia's performance is further recognised with 4 riders in the top 10: 3rd Megan Jones(55.00), 6th Clayton Fredricks (57.10), 9th Sonja Johnson (58.80), 10th Lucinda Fredricks (59.60)-what a truly incredible effort! Europa Saddlery proudly sponsors and supports Sonja & Jag and everyone at Europa joins Greg and Michael Johnson and their families in sending heartfelt congratulations to Sonja & Jag, Dan & Phoebe, Jim & Gussie and all the support crew and grooms. We are all so very proud of this farmer from Albany and her WA bred Australian Stockhorse who have shown the world great determination, tenacity and a fantastic West Aussie spirit!
