James Paterson-Robinson is the Rolex one to watch for June 2012
James Paterson-Robinson and Lanosso at the Bourg-en-Bresse CSI4*
Currently based at Ger Poels Horses stables in The Netherlands, the 33-year-old jumped from 427th to 237th during June - a move up the Rolex Rankings of 190 places.
James established himself as a very successful junior rider, having made his international debut at the Young Rider Challenge tournament in India in 1998. Two years later, at the age of 21, James moved from his hometown of Victoria (AUS), where he was based at Barwon Heads Pony Club, to pursue his riding career in Europe. In 2001 and 2003, James won the five-year-old division of the FEI World Breeding Young Horse Jumping Championships, and many notable wins followed.
James and 11-year-old black stallion, Niack de l’Abbaye, had many successes in 2010, having won the CSI4* Geesteren (NED) Grand Prix; finishing in second place at both the CSIO3*-NC Linz-Ebelsberg (AUT) and the CSIO4*-NC Lummen (BEL); and placed 13th at the CSI5* San Patrignano (ITA) Grand Prix.
