Up Chiqui is my favorite GP horse. He looks so happy and incredibly capable. Kent rides him so well.

Thanks for sharing!

7 horses in the jump-off---Mclain Ward with Phillipa. Spooner and Madmoiselle and Pariska, Up Chiqui and Farrington, Ole and Cone, Casadora and Hough, and Obelix and Kenny.
Ward had a text-book perfect ride with a time that held until the last rider, Kenny, who poured on the speed to take the first from Ward.
The course did not seem as technically challenging as I had expected, perhaps because it is early in the season. I remember the course from 2006 as being more challenging. Riders all out there with their new horses. Weather was perfect!

Got to talk to Kenny after the show. What a nice young man (sound like a really old lady writing that!) with a lovely Irish accent.

The jump off course was pretty straight forward - not much room to make up time - gallop on!
