Delighted with Amsterdam’s 4* debut which saw him finish in the top 20, narrowly missing out on a rosette. 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 a superb round.
Cleveland gave Jesse a great feel over a very technical track, that saw almost half the competitors not make it through to the final phase. They were up on the time at the half way mark – the second water. An excellent jump into the water when an unlucky catching of a bell-boot on their second stride ….and it was all over – from 1st place to wet boots.
Both Cleveland and Amsterdam arrived safely back to England, ready for their next campaign.
