In France last weekend it was looking forward to the international show in Bourg-En-Bresse, where both a four-star and a two-star competition were on the programme. The CSI2* GP on Sunday afternoon looked particularly successful for our blue/yellow colours, as we got not one but two Zangersheide horses on the podium.

The best performance came from French rider Enzo Chiarotto and the only 8-year-old chestnut stallion Kailash Heureka Z, a son of our chestnut stallion Kassander van 't Roosakker Z and Verdi TN bred by Luc Henry and J.J. Remijnse. Chiarotto and Kailash Heureka Z were one of the eight combinations who managed to clear the basic round, securing a place in the jump-off. In that jump-off, they managed to repeat their flawless performance from the basic round once more and their finishing time of 41.70 seconds was ultimately good for 2nd place in the standings.

But we also got a second Zangersheide horse on the podium at this CSI2* GP and Chiarotto's compatriot Lou Favede took care of that with the 9-year-old mare Ariba Ter Elzen Z, a daughter of Air Jordan Alpha Z and Heartbreaker from the breeding farm of Werner Heuninckx. Favede and Ariba Ter Elzen Z also had no faults in the jump-off and with a finishing time of 43.17 seconds they eventually took 3rd place.

In the CSI4* competition, Swiss rider Pius Schwizer managed to secure a victory with the 10-year-old mare Scarlina de Tiji Z, a daughter of Hunter's Scendro and Kannan bred by Tim Van Tricht and Jill Smits of T&J BV. In the 1.50m main class on Sunday, Schwizer and Scarlina de Tiji Z were one of nine combinations who managed to qualify for the jump-off and in it they managed to outclass the competition with a clear round in 36.21 seconds.

But the other podium places during these classes were also coloured blue and yellow thanks to British rider Lily Attwood with her 14-year-old gelding Cor-Leon Vd Vlierbeek Z (Calvaro F.C. x Omar - B: De Vlierbeek) and French rider Nicolas Deseuzes with the 11-year-old stallion Eldorado Sunheup Z (Eldorado van de Zeshoek x Quartz du Chanu - B: Carine Groualle Elevage Sunheup). They too again kept it neatly clear in the jump-off, but crossed the finish line in 36.76 seconds and 38.33 seconds respectively. Moreover, during the opening day on Thursday, Deseuzes and Eldorado Sunheup Z also managed to finish 3rd in the 1.40m class.

Finally, on Friday there was also a 3rd place reserved for Pius Schwizer with the 11-year-old chestnut gelding Chelsea Z, a breeding product of Willy Sijbers who combined the blood of Chellano Alpha Z with that of Cicero Z. Schwizer and Chelsea Z gained their 3rd place during the 1.50m high speed class, in which they ensured a clear round.
