I’m Charlie Brister and this is my 2* Eventer San Suki, or Stella as she’s known. Having competed at the top eventing level here at home for six years now, it’s time to take the next step towards international competition.
I have an incredible opportunity to run an eventing team in the United States, which next year will be the focus of the Equestrian world during the World Championships in North Carolina. It will be the base for all the top riders and a huge number of lead up events will also be international standard competition.
I’ve worked hard to build a solid business, profile and reputation in Australia and it’s tough to leave that behind. But the reality is that in the US there are more high-level competitions, a much larger group of elite riders, and importantly more coaches. (Although some of our Australians are best by far!)
Being based overseas maximises the chances of Olympic selection for Tokyo 2020 and the following 2024 games which are likely to be in the US.
I’d love you join Brister Equestrian for this journey and to support the team of horses needed. Stella is fit and fantastic, and already strong at 2* Eventing, looking to go much further. She is a 10yo WbxTb. Last month we placed 5th in the CCI2* at Quirindi and 2nd in the CIC1* at Sydney.
Having carefully developed this partnership with Stella during the past year, it would be fantastic to take her to the States, but we need some financial help for her journey.
The funds will be spent paying for Stella’s flight from Sydney to New York, quarantine and importantly the insurance.
I am flying out on Monday and the next international flying horse transport to the US is in 2 weeks so it’s time to get cracking.
