Equestrian success in Germany

When Pippa Creamer sold Holstein Park Leilani as a three-year-old she could have never expected the success she would have.

The now 17-year-old mare has competed in the London Olympics, the Badminton horse trials and has just come out on top at the World Equestrian Festival Aachen in Germany, held at the end of June.

Despite wet weather Holstein Park Leilani and her rider Chris Burton still claimed victory.

"She is the best eventing horse I have had so far, "Mrs Creamer said.

"She has done it all, taken it right to the top and has nothing else to prove."
