In an interview after the event Gireg said “I can’t believe it, my horse was amazing, from the dressage through to the end of the cross-country – he’s been so good. He’s only a nine-year-old, but he’s so honest.” The combination has their first run at this level CCI4* at Arville last month and finished sixth.
Gemma Tattersall who came 2nd by a tenth of a penalty joked after the competition” That will be my badly-ridden flying change, – she’s put in a great performance this weekend, and I’m so proud of her. There was a lot of determination, to be honest. She gave me a bit of a heart attack near the end of the course – I lost my steering for some reason, but we managed to stay inside the flags!”
