Week two in Vilamoura saw the team well and truly settled in and ready for action.

Tuesday started strong for Louise and Charlotta II setting the bar with a 9th place in the 6 year old class, then taking 11th in the same class on Thursday, not rolling a pole all week.

Graham & Rhon placed 12th in a very competitive 7-year-old class, jumping round in 80.25 seconds.

David and I’m Special Too Dhh topped their 5th place last week to take 2nd int he 7-year-olds 1m30 with a super double clear.

Thursday was a busy day for the team, the ranking class brought out the big guns, with David and Jenson 55 narrowly beating Louise and Marvin in 4th and 5th place respectively. I’m Special Too claimed another top 10 placing with David, and Louise and Carracasca B took 4th in the 1.30 accumulator.

David went on to have 9th place finish with Carlo (Carlosspri) in the 1.35 while Louise established her place atop the 1.30 podium here, piloting Fiona (van het Lemmenshof) to the win in that class yet again this week.

Meanwhile, the DLS students were making the team equally as proud. Annie and Nobel De Reve placed 6th in the 6-year-olds, improving on their 11th earlier in the week, while Antonia finished on Sunday with a 7th place, following a beautiful double clear with Amigo.

The Vitek sisters continued their top form with 7 top ten placings between them, including three fifth places for Kristina, and a 6th for Anna.

It was a great week and a great start to a new partnership for Olivia and Cancara E, the pair notching up double clears in all their classes – surely a sign of things to come.
