Australian eventer Kevin McNab is set to make his competitive comeback with 2 rides at Luhmühlen this weekend (12-15 June)

The eventer was suspended from competition for 8 and half months after his horse Clifton Pinot tested positive for banned substance reserpine at Burghley last September.

He had his provisional suspension lifted after a partial decision following an FEI tribunal last week (6 June).

Clifton Pinot was initially entered to compete at Luhmühlen with fellow Australian Shane Rose, but Kevin has now been substituted as the rider.

The horse, who finished 5th at Luhmühlen last year, has jumped 2 double clears with Kevin’s partner Emma Dougall at open intermediates at Aston-le-Walls (14 May) and Little Downham (30 May) this year.

Kevin will also be riding 10-year-old Fernhill Quality Street for the horse’s 4-star debut.

Kevin, who formerly trained Jock Paget, moved to England in 2012 with the aim of being selected for the World Equestrian Games and the Olympics.
