Bintang II and Laura Renwick
Horse and Rider feature – Laura Renwick and Bintang II – As one of the country’s leading lady showjumpers, Laura Renwick is known for forming great partnerships with her horses. This unbreakable bond of trust with her horses has helped Laura to the top of her sport.
A regular on the international circuit, Laura has a passion for home-produced horses, with a strong belief in giving horses time to mature and not pushing them too far too soon.
Laura and her husband, John, have a string of top horses at their yard based in Essex. One star of the yard that has been a consistent performer is Bintang II, or Bing, as he is known at home.
Bintang is by international breeding stallion, Tangelo Van De Zuuthoeve, and was bred by the Bleekman family at the Whorridge Stud in Devon in 2006, before joining Team Renwick as a five-year-old.
The talented, big-striding bay gelding is now owned by Laura and her husband John. The pair has gone on to enjoy success in some of the top competitions around the world, including a phenomenal win at the Longines Global Champions Tour of Madrid in 2016, in the same year that they qualified for the World Cup Final in Gothenburg.
Laura and Bing have also made four appearances in Great Britain’s Nations Cup teams including the 2015 Nations Cup Final in Barcelona.
Recently Bintang helped Laura to victory in the CSI4* Grand Prix in Geesteren, over a huge 1m 60 track to secure the keys to a brand new Mercedes car, one of two that
Laura won at the same show, with MHS Washington also on form winning the Mercedes Benz Prix.
Laura is famous for her chilled out and cheerful attitude, a characteristic she shares with Bintang: “He is so laid back, only really lighting up when he gets in the arena,” said Laura.
“He absolutely loves treats and will do anything for a Polo mint but his favourite thing of all is to spend time in the paddock with his best friend, Jonjo, who is a Welsh Section A.”
