Windsor, Berkshire, England – July 01, 2021 – The Puissance rounded off a spectacular day of national Show Jumping action in Windsor’s famous Castle Arena, with a duo of greys out-jumping their rivals in the five-round competition. From the six starters, four made it through to the fourth round to face the daunting 2.05m wall.
However with both Robert Whitaker (GBR) and Shane Breen (IRL) failing to clear the wall, it was left to Joseph Stockdale (GBR) and Guy Williams (GBR) to battle it out in the fifth round as the wall was raised to 2.10cm. Stockdale, riding the 11-year-old grey gelding Florida VDL, was first to guarantee his place at the top of the leaderboard, however Williams, with the experienced Mr Blue Sky UK, made effortless work of the iconic wall to share the spoils.
