It was another week competing for DLS, who did not disappoint in the second week of their Vilamoura tour, with multiple clear rounds and placings picked up.
David joined the team from Oslo and campaigned 7-year-old Indian Quality Z in the age classes during the start of the week. This relatively new ride strutted her stuff in the arena, and proved to be quite competitive – bringing home a 4th and 5th place. A tremendous start to this horse’s tour.
The 3* show started on Thursday, and DLS were out in full force for the 3* 1.30. David piloted Danny Dunne’s gorgeous Indeed 28 to a foot-perfect clear round to finish just off the podium in 4th place. Antonia was not far behind him, jumping to 7th place with her own G Star Blue. Continuing her good form, Antonia then slotted into 12th place in the 3* 1.40 on Marvin van Waterhoeve.
David and Indeed impressed again it the 3* 1.35 to pick up 10th – a very good start to the tour for this pair. Super stallion Carleyle came out to play and he clearly enjoys jumping in the sun, adding a 5th place in the 3* 1.40 to his resume.
A huge thanks to the whole team for a great week – roll on week 3!
