Darcy wins her first BS Affiliated class

Posted on October 3, 2021

This week Shane and Ellen stayed in France take on the 2* show at Fontainebleau.

Friday was, yet again, full of clear rounds. Cato Boy cruised around the 1* 1.30 while Vistogrand impressed around the 2* 1.35. KBS Major Player brought the clear round tally up to three, jumping a masterclass in the 2* 1.35, setting him up for the weekend.

On Saturday, the horses all schooled round their respective classes.. Vistogrand made the 2* 1.35 look easy, whilst Gait L flew around the 2* 1.45. 7-year-old Cato Boy stepped up to the challenge in the 1* 1.30, showcasing his scope and technique.

Sunday was a busy day with all horses jumping. Shane rode Cato Boy around the 1* 1.25, taking his time to teach Cato Boy some more ring craft. KBS Major Player showed off round the 2* Grand Prix, really proving why he deserves to be at the top of the sport. Vistogrand had a play around the 2* 1.40 for a clear round, but Nit to be outshone, Gait L took 8th in the same class.

A huge shout out to Darcy Breen, who won her BS Affiliated class, the 128 Springboard, at Felbridge on Little Ceasar! A first of what we are sure will be many wins for this pairing.
