Barbury Treble for Andrew Nicholson

Swallow Spings winner of the CCI4 S at Barbury International Horse Trials ridden by Andrew Nicholson and owned by smaller

Andrew Nicholson was in triumphant mood at this year’s Barbury Horse Trials with three fantastic wins at the Wiltshire event.

The TopSpec-sponsored rider was in superlative form in the CCI4*-S riding the11-year-old Swallow Springs.

This is Andrew’s sixth win at this level at the event as he retains his title as the ‘King of Barbury’.

After a great dressage test and with a clear showjumping round, the unbeatable pair produced the second fasted time of the day with a solid ride across country.

Said Andrew: “Swallow Springs felt like Avebury [four-time winner at Barbury] going round the cross-country – he’s got stacks of speed and is a pleasure to ride.

Andrew also celebrated with another fantastic win at the event when he finished in first place with the Spanish bred As Is in section B of the CCI3*-S.

Starting in second place after the dressage phase the pair then went clear showjumping, and arrived home with a brilliant cross-country time.

Adding to his great event  Andrew also secured a Novice section with the talented Damaso to round off a brilliant Barbury.

Andrew has been supported by TopSpec for many years and with their team of nutritionists has developed a feed regime for each horse on the yard.

He is a huge fan of TopSpec Comprehensive Feed Balancer, TopChop Sport and TopSpec Performance Cubes from the range.
