An excerpt from EQUESTRIAN SPORTS NZ June 27 2014:
World Class NZ Eventing Team for WEG
Equestrian Sports New Zealand have named an impressive eventing line-up for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in France in August.
New Zealand’s most capped eventers Andrew Nicholson and Sir Mark Todd spearhead a four-strong team that also includes Tim Price and Jock Paget. Each of the four can claim at least one four star win – the highest level of eventing competition.
Nicholson has been named on either Nereo (owned by Libby Sellar) or Avebury (owned by Rosemary and Mark Barlow), Todd on Leonidas (owned by Peter Cattrell and Di Brunsden), Price on Wesko (owned by Christina Knudsen, Peter Vela, Lucy Sangster and Kate Watchman), and Paget on Clifton Promise (owned by Frances Stead and Russell Hall).
It will be the second time Paget has ridden at WEG but his first in the team, while Price is on début following his recent four star win at the Luhmuhlen International Horse Trials. Confirmation of Paget’s selection hinges on the final ruling from the FEI Tribunal after his horse Clifton Promise tested positive for a banned substance last year. Earlier this month his provisional suspension was lifted, allowing him to return to competition.
