September 28, 00:00





This week found Jack and Shane in France for the Canteleu’s 3* and Young Horse show. 

Off to a good start, Shane and Evita took 5th in Thurday’s opening 3* 1.40 with Jack and Hollywood clear in the same class. Both Shane with Z7 Regal Don and Jack with Ivan were clear in the 7-year-olds. 

Friday brought even better things for Shane and Evita in the 3* 1.40, the pair bettering Thursday’s result by one place to finish in 2nd placeJack and Sunni’s ever impressive Hollywood were in excellent form, finishing 4th in that class before Jack went on to take home 2nd in the 7-year-olds aboard Ivan. 

The pair were also clear in the first round of that same class on Saturday while Shane and Z7 Regal Don finished in 14th. Shane then went on to pilot Can Ya Makan around the 3* 1.50, finishing in the money prizes. 

Sunday brought the 3* Grand Prix and despite a fantastic round, one unlucky pole put Shane and Compelling Z out of the running early on. 

It was the same story for Jack and Hollywood who put in a terrific performance in the 3* 1.45 Speed class for just an unlucky four faults.
