Molly gets results

KARDELLA eventer Molly Barry has headed to the United Kingdom for a working holiday, just days after coming fifth in the CCI two star class at the Melbourne International Three Day Event (MI3DE)recently.
Molly was also the highest placed young rider in that class, and was presented the inaugural Caitlyn Fischer Memorial Trophy for this achievement.
Riding her thoroughbred La Muso, she was thrilled with her result.
“I was very impressed with Muso’s performance in all three phases. Eventing is about balancing each phase so that you can perform equally well in all three, and for MI3DE, we certainly found that balance,” she said.
“I know Muso can perform even better as he strengthens and matures as he is still only eight years old, which is certainly an exciting prospect for the future.”
Molly said at MI3DE, nearly all of her stars were aligned.
“We scored personal best dressage percentage for a three day event at two star level, were clear and under time on cross country and had just the one rail in the showjumping phase,” she said.
Molly is now in England for two months, to groom for Australian Olympian Sam Griffiths and British rider Emily Lochore.
She said she is hoping to earn some valuable experience working and riding for the international riders.
“I will also be visiting my Irish family while over there,” she said.
When Molly returns to Australia, she will start preparing La Muso for the Adelaide and Wallaby Hill events later in the year.
