Ceva sponsored rider Stuart Tinney just selected for the Rio Olympics

Equestrian Australia has just announced the final team chosen to represent Australia in Eventing.

Twelve combinations were sent to the Pre-Games staging camp in the UK and from these four

combinations have been chosen. Stuart Tinney on Pluto Mio is to be joined by Chris Burton (Santano

II), Sam Griffiths (Paulank Brockagh) and Shane Rose (CP Qualified). Stuart was part of the gold

medal winning team who represented Australia at Sydney 2000, Rio will be his third Olympic games.

At the Sydney Olympics Stuart riding Jeepster was the only Australian-based member of the team

and was ranked highest of all the riders in the event. Stuart also competed at the Athens Olympics in

2004. Stuart’s horse for Rio is Pluto Mio, a 17-year old grey gelding who was the best performing

Australian horse at the 2014 FEI World Equestrian Games.

Stuart has been sponsored by Ceva (formerly Nature Vet) since 2000. Stuart has advised us that Ceva

products have helped his horses to maintain “good joint health over many, many years of

competition.” Stuart commented about his Sydney Olympic horse Jeepster that “he retired when he

was 19 years old after doing the Athens Olympics as well and he was still sound when he retired…

fantastic products…kept him going for a long time.”

Ceva wishes Stuart and Pluto Mio all the best for the upcoming Games.
