Australian rider Craig Barrett won the FEI Eventing in Adeleide, Australia after an excellent performance in both the cross country and the jumping to take the title in the second leg of the HSBC FEI Classics™ 2012/2013.
The victory was a huge success for the HSBC Training Bursary, as Craig's victory was the first time someone from the bursary had won an event in the series.
The event attracted excellent, enthusiastic and knowledgeable crowds, particularly for the jumping, which as is so often the case, was nail biting and exciting in its climax.
Although Barrett had the advantage of two fences in hand, as every eventing fan knows, that is certainly not enough to guarantee victory when things can change so quickly and it went down to the wire.
