Kieffer Australia sponsored rider Brett Parbery overcame almost impossible weather conditions at the Equine Lifestyle Festival in Hawkesbury over the 13-15 November weekend to win on Good as Gold, his bay Australian warmblood.

This is the second time in a month Brett has succeeded despite torrential weather — he and black Hanoverian gelding DP Weltmieser were named Australian Grand Prix Champions for 2015 at the Saddleworld Australian Dressage Championships in harrowing conditions in late October.
