It was a great first week for the whole team out in Spain with all of the horses in great form. The 7 year old's stole the show with Louise and David taking 3 places in the top 5 of the 7 year old Grand Prix. Louise won the class on Jaffar de Bourginon who was at his first show back after his summer holiday, she also took 2nd with the Breen's Hello Vivendi who's form from HOYS continued. David took 5th with a new ride The Jeweller who joined the DLS team last month and has been very impressive. Helen Cruden was also in great form in the 5 year old's with her new ride CSF Eye Wonder who was clear everyday.
The older horses kept the successful week going with numerous wins and placings. Louise and Fiona v/h Lemmonshof won the small Grand Prix in great style whilst David and the Jackson's Starfighter took 5th in a very competitive 1.40 final. Anya Jackson joined the team taking a quick break from her university studies to take 4th in the 1.25 with her horse Liberty 348.
A big thank you to the girls Beth, Jaz and Grace, its the first International tour for all of them and they have been doing a fantastic job. On to week 2.... wish us luck!!!
