David spent two weeks in Lanaken, Belgium. The first week he had Colm O’Donnell’s The Jeweller, Gurtera Cara Duhb, Breen Equestrian’s Foudre F, Jenson 55 and Barracuda EX for the CSI3*, Emma Harrison’s Verdi’s Mexico and John & Clare Whitaker and our own Viktor for the CSI1* and our own Balloon Cruise for the CSIYH1*.
Thursday started with the CSI3* 1.40 two phase where The Jeweller made a very pleasing start by finishing 7th and Gurtera Cara Duhb jumped a double clear.
Barracuda EX jumped in the CSI3* 1.25 and Foudre F jumped a good round in the 1.30 for a time fault.
On Friday Barracuda got off to a good start finishing 8th in the 1.30, and Gurtera jumped well in the 1.40. In the CSI1* both Viktor and Verdi’s Mexico jumped in the 1.25 and our lovely Balloon Cruise jumped a clear round in the Six Year Olds.
On Saturday Foudre F jumped a lovely round in the 1.40 two phase to finish 11th. Gutera jumped her first 1.45 and Jenson 55 jumped a great round in the 1.50 for four faults. Balloon Cruise jumped the six year olds and both Verdi’s Mexico and Viktor jumped clear in the CSI1* 1.25 speed class with Viktor finishing with a low placing.
Sunday, as always, was Grand Prix Day. The Jeweller started the day in the 1.35 and Gutera jumped the 1.45. Jenson jumped a lovely round in the CSI3* 1.50 Grand Prix just breathing on the last fence for a late falling four faults. Balloon Cruise continued her consistent form to finish 5th in the Six Year Old final. Viktor jumped in the CSI1* 1.20 class to finish 12th and Verdi’s Mexico jumped the 1* Grand Prix to finish 19th.
