Ebreichsdorf, Austria - Talent was on display for E2 Showjumpers during the Magna Racino Spring Tour in Vienna, Austria. With a string of five young mounts, E2 Showjumpers racked up clear rounds during the two weeks of competition. "We jumped a lot of great, clean rounds," expressed E2 Showjumpers co-founder Michael Meller. "What was so good about it was that we moved each horse up a level at the horse show. They all rose to the occasion and made it look easy."

Meller added, "I was impressed with the show grounds and impressed with how they ran the horse show. I was really happy to see our horses thriving."

During the CSI2* week, the 8-year-old Dutch Warmblood Stallion Camillo VDL finished with no jumping faults in the 1.35m division and stepped up the 1.40m section for the CSI3* week. Great Britain's Stacy Babes piloted him to a fault free first round to qualify for the jump-off on the final day. The 11-year-old Holsteiner gelding Caius was successful in the 1.40m jumpers and stepped up to the 1.45m ivision during the CSI3* level.

During the two weeks of competition, the 8-year-old Zangersheide mare Arena Z never knocked down a single rail. She started in the 1.30m division during the CSI2* week and successfully moved up to the 1.35m division. After competing in two jump-offs, Arena Z and Babes stepped up again, this time to the 1.40m jumpers during the CSI3*, where they incurred just a single time fault.

In the young horse divisions, it was 7-year-old Cazador LS and 6-year-old Little Beach that triumphantly carried the flag for E2 Showjumpers. Cazador LS competed in the 7-Year-Old 1.35m Finale with just one time fault. Little Beach was double clear during the 6-Year-old 1.30m Finale to finish in the top 10 the first week, and he made it to the jump-off during the second week as well.

E2 Showjumpers will continue to compete with their talented group of horses in Europe with riders Stacy Babes and Dan Walsh.
