Samantha Palmer in 2017

Winners at Dunolly HRCAV Trials Lv 2, Clyde with his new rug.

Congratulations to Samantha and handsome Clyde who came out over-all winners at the Dunolly HRCAV Trials in Level 2 on the weekend of May 6-7 2017!  Dressage produced mixed results for Sam coming in 2nd place, 8 points behind the winner, but true to Clyde’s form – Cross Country was sensational with a clear round, and 2 rails down in show jumping.  For their efforts, Clyde is sporting a beautiful new sash and woollen rug.  Well done team Palmer!!!


Samantha competed at the Heytesbury Horse Trials on the weekend of  22 & 23 April 2017.  Competing on a rain soaked course, which was very wet and slippery in places, Samantha had mixed results for her and Clyde’s efforts. As usual Clyde shone in the cross country jumping clear with an overall result of 22nd of 40 entries.  Well done to both Sam and Clyde for doing so well in such challenging conditions!

Samantha’s instructors have confidence that Sam and  Clyde have the ability to make it all the way to 3* eventing and she has a number of events and clinics booked in for the year ahead.  Samantha is very proud and excited to be part of the Victorian Eventing Squad meeting every two months at Werribee Park.

“My main goal is to ride at the Melbourne International 3 Day Event, which is held in June at Werribee each year.  I have quite a way to go to get to this level, and hopefully Clyde and I can get there with the Freemantle’s logo by our side” said Sam.
