With Shane out in Doha to compete at the first leg of the Global Champions Tour 2021, it was down to Georgia, Jack and Trevor to represent Breen and Z7 in The President of the UAE Showjumping Cup, and they certainly didn’t disappoint. 

By the end of day one the team had collectively racked up 6 top ten finishes and a further two clear rounds. This impressive tally was largely due to the team’s performance in the 3* 1.50 Ranking class, in which Georgia and Z7 Caretina jumped to 2nd place, with Trevor and Jack hot on her heels on BBS McGregor, KBS Major Player and Germaine W. Can Ya Dance played her part with a 6th place in the 3* 1.30 with Georgia, but it was Hollywood who put the team on the podium to finish 3rd following a fantastic performance. 

On the second day, Trevor put in a lovely round with Germaine W in the 1.50 Grand Prix Qualifier to take 3rd place. BBS McGregor and Z7 Caretina also earned their spot in the Grand Prix with Jack and Georgia. 

The final day of the show was Georgia’s time to shine as she rode a fantastic round on Z7 Ascot claiming 2nd place in the 3* Grand Prix, mirroring her success earlier in the day with Can Ya Dance in the 3* Small Grand Prix. One down in the first round saw Jack and KBS Major Player take 9th in the 3* Grand Prix, and a roll of a pole in the Small Grand Prix jump off just kept him and Hollywood out the top 10 but finishing a respectable 12th. 

Meanwhile Shane was making the team proud aboard Z7 Ipswich out in Doha. Jumping a beautiful clear round earlier on in the week, the pair went on to clinch 8th place in the Grand Prix, Shane reported: “I’m absolutely delighted with our result, especially as it’s our first 5* appearance in 7 months.”. 

A huge well done to the team, and to the amazing Team Z7, who have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to keep the horses on top form.
