Winner’s Circle – Olivier Robert (FRA)

“It’s been a great weekend! We are really happy because Vangog from Mas Garnier had a wonderful reaction on this course. He comes back from a little long stop; these are just his first two international competitions. To win a great event in this way today is a real pleasure. I am very proud of my horse. I was already present at the Hubside Jumping in Grimaud last week, where Vangog gently restarted. This week he took third in an event on Thursday and today he wins the main class; it’s a super nice day! He is in great shape, he is really happy, I think he is getting a second youth! We will therefore be present in Grimaud in September, no doubt!”

Les Impressions de Olivier Robert (FRA)

C’est une belle fin de semaine ! Nous sommes vraiment heureux parce que Vangog du Mas Garnier a eu une réaction magnifique sur ce parcours. Il rentre d’un arrêt un petit peu long ; il s’agit seulement de ses deux premiers concours internationaux. Gagner de cette façon une belle épreuve aujourd’hui est un vrai plaisir. Je suis vraiment très fier de mon cheval. J’étais déjà présent sur l’HUBSIDE JUMPING de Grimaud la semaine dernière, sur lequel Vangog a redémarré gentiment. Cette semaine, il a pris la troisième place d’une épreuve jeudi et aujourd’hui, il gagne la grosse épreuve du jour ; c’est une super belle journée ! Il est en pleine forme, il est vraiment heureux, je crois qu’il retrouve une deuxième jeunesse ! On sera donc présent à Grimaud en septembre à n’en pas douter!
