Pontispool (2)

After a very quick turnaround post Blenheim, it was off to Pontispool where Gio had a fantastic day, all three of his rides finishing in the top 10.

Duke of Champions, a catch ride and half brother to Duke of Champion, bagged a win in the Open Novice, adding nothing to his 23.8 dressage score.

Criscade del Pavarino only added cross country time penalties to a dressage score of 32.1 to finish seventh in an intermediate section, while Headleys Deluxe (pictured) was eighth in a novice, clear inside the time across country but with one pole down, finishing on a score of 35.3.
