Three sunny and warm weeks of MET III finished today with all of our horses taking nice placings. Lennox was the star of today finishing third in the Small Grand Prix with Mikko. They actually achieved the same top placing also a week ago finishing third in the second week’s Small Grand Prix! Mikko’s new mount Crest continued to show potential and had a placing in almost all of his starts in the Gold Tour 130-135cm classes. Mikael was mostly pleased with 7-years old Vegas Tuilière, whom has really taken huge steps mentally and physically during the last weeks. This past weekend she performed steadily taking two nr. 5 placings.
Our stable jockey Petra Huru had an unlucky fault with Stranger in today’s difficult Small Grand Prix as did Mikael’s student Petra Heikkinen. Both ladies have however taken several placings in 130-140cm classes and rode some super rounds. Petra Huru also jumped three good clear rounds with Greta during this past weekend.
Having enjoyed our time in Oliva Nova we decided to stay for the last MET IV spring tour as well. Now the horses get a week’s rest with some relaxed flatwork until the next show begins on 12th of April.
