Dressage & Jumping with the Stars (DJWTS) has kicked off at Werribee Park Equestrian Centre in Victoria, and already there have been some standout performances!


The FEI Prix St Georges Cup saw some very strong performances from a number of combinations, however it was Jayden Brown and the Lauren George owned Davinci L who, in the end, were standout winners. The pair, who made a clean sweep of the Small Tour classes at Willinga Park’s Dressage by the Sea earlier this month, scored an impressive 75% (with one judge scoring over 77%).

Second place went to Brett Parbery and the Willinga Park owned stallion Sky Diamond, with a score of 72.745%. In third was young rider Lindsey Ware and the lovely Aristede, the horse formerly owned by Shannan Goodwin, who was the reserve for last year’s World Equestrian Games. The pair, who have only been together a matter of months, scored a big 71.373% in strong company. Fourth place was Riley Alexander and MI Sirtainly Sir on 70.637%.

The first four all over 70%, what a fabulous effort!
