French Showjumpers dominate in Bordeaux


The French show jumping squad proved to be the best on home soil this weekend in Bordeaux, France. Pénélope Leprevost already won Friday’s 1.50m class and  she took a second win in the 1.60m Land Rover Grand Prix on Saturday.

On Saturday it proved to be a battle royale between Leprevost and our own Laura Renwick riding Bintang II (by Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve). But it was Leprevost and the 12-year-old Nice Stephanie who took the win finishing in 38.15 seconds.

Belgium’s Jerome Guery recorded yet another top result with the 10-year-old super talent Grand Cru van de Rozenberg (Malito de Reves x Heartbreaker) to take third, a second behind Leprevost in the jump-off. Harrie Smolders and Emerald (Diamant De Semilly x Carthago) finished fourth and Marcus Ehning and Pret A Tout (Hiram Chambertin x Stew Boy) fifth.

It was quite a weekend for Haras des Coudrettes too, thanks to their two super star riders Kevin Staut and Patrice Delaveau. Today the latter won his third class of the weekend, increasing the number of victories for Haras des Coudrettes to four.
