We are delighted with Amsterdam’s 4* debut which saw him narrowly miss out on a prize. He impressed everyone with his pleasure and pizazz in all five phases of the event. Here is is – bright as a button on the last day of his first 4*, at the final Ground Jury inspection before showjumping.
Cleveland felt superb. He gave me a great feel over a very technical track that saw almost half the competitors not make it through to the final. We were up on the time at the half way mark – the second water. He gave me an excellent jump into the water when on his second stride he caught his toe.
Both Cleveland and Amsterdam are happy and well, they arrived back England this morning ready for a day in their field before beginning their next campaign.
