The Land Rover Blair Castle Horse Trials in numbers

The jumping phases are key
From the 20 three star competitions held at Blair since 2008, only three winners have led after the dressage phase.

Dressage score finishers
Only 10 people have finished on their dressage score since 2008 in a Blair CIC3* or CCI3*. No one has done it since 2015 when Michael Jung won the Europeans.

The course specialist
Nicola Wilson has won five three star internationals at Blair since 2008. She is the only rider to have won the CIC3* more than once (she has four CIC3* titles from 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2014). She is also the only rider to win both a CCI3* (2016) and a CIC3*.

Show jumping
The difference between the highest show jumping clear rate in the CCI3* at Blair since 2008 and the lowest is 45 per cent. In 2015 (the year of the Europeans) 45 per cent of combinations jumped clear. In 2017 no one jumped a clear show jumping round. Blair has a 26 per cent show jumping clear rate at CCI3*, compared to the global average at CCI3* since 2008 of 16 per cent.
