Cortney Cox was, as always, very motivated in Doha. He jumped a fantastic double clear in the Global Champions League, as well as the horse from my partner Daniel Deusser, which meant a victory for the Shanghai Swans in the first leg of the Global Champions League. Living The Dream won a 145 class on Saturday and showed one more time how good he is.
This show did not go according to my plan, which is fortunately quite rare. I rode both qualifications for the GP with Chaquilot, that I need to get to know better, and for this reason I did not manage to be qualified for the GP. My plan was to ride PSG Future for the GP. He finally only jumped the opening class. Balou Rubin R showed one more time how fast he can be by taking the second place of the “hunting” competition.
Paris was a beautiful show with many highlights. PSG Future won a lot of money in the Accumulator class on Saturday evening and proved that he still can jump everything with his 15 years old. About A Dream was a bit impressed the first day by the very special atmosphere of the Grand Palais but jumped fantastic on Sunday and even took the 9th place of the 1.60m GP.
This week I’m competing in Gorla Minore with Ulane Belmaniere, Balou Rubin R, Grand Cooper, La Roshel and Diawella D.
