Jumping International de Chantilly

It wasn’t the 14th of July (French National Day) but it could have just have been: The Marseillaise sung by the public to mark a French win in this the last leg of the 2013 Jumping, a competition that will not be soon forgotten!
And what a victory: that of Patrice Delaveau riding Carinjo, a horse with whom the harmony is getting stronger as time goes by. If Patrice finished 3rd in the Aachen Grand Prix three weeks ago, Carinjo finished in the same position in the same Grand Prix….in 2012.
On the first day, a clear round and he finished 6th. Therefore the moral is coming back, the form is returning and now I can look forward to going back to big competitions.” Indeed, the Sunday Grand Prix, the EADS Master in Chantilly, is a priori less complicated than the Longines Global Champions Tour. But then again: ”it’s a Grand Prix where you find some of the very good horses from the previous day, but a little tired, because they have done the Global, or they are horses with a less experience. All the same, there were a lot of horses at the start and the course designer, Uliano Vezzani, could not come up with an easy course as we didn’t want too many clear rounds in the end it was fairly complicated, very technical.
The Swiss Jane Richard (Dieudonné de Guidelboom) took second place in this EADS Master in front of Jerome Hurel (Quartz Rouge) showing that his spectacular fall Saturday was something of the past. Talking of souvenirs, The Chantilly 2013 will only leave good ones. That of an event definitely anchored amongst the top equestrian events in the world.
