Top eventing couple Andrew and Bettina Hoy are moving back to Britain after spending just over a year in Germany.
Australian Olympic team gold medallist Andrew and his German wife Bettina (pictured), a former European champion, were unable to find a suitable home in Britain after leaving Gatcombe Park in February 2009. They therefore contested the 2009 season from the German equestrian federation base in Warendorf.
“It’s a joint-venture between Farley Estate and Hoy Enterprises,” said Andrew. “I’m in the process of moving now and Bettina will spend a bit more time in Germany, preparing for Luhmühlen and selling her dressage horse.”
The couple had a successful weekend at Houghton — Andrew was third in CCI** section C and Bettina won the other CCI**.
