Oliva Nova, Spain – December 11, 2021 – Harold Boisset (FRA) and T’Obetty du Domaine were back to their winning days at the Mediterranean Equestrian Tour (MET) last Saturday. The dynamic duo topped the €25,500 Construcciones Hispano Germanas S.A CSI 3*, the feature class of the day during the last week of the Autumn MET III Series at the renowned venue.
The Frenchman and the 2007 chestnut Selle Français mare (Kashmir Van Schuttershof x Diams du Grasset) triumphed in the 1.45m contest, blazing across the finish line after a penalty-free effort in 36.62 seconds during the tiebreaker.
Richard Howley (IRL) and Victor raced across the course too, putting in a valid fault-free jump-off effort in 37.20 seconds, a mark that would earn them silver honors.
Perhaps the most consistent rider of the Autumn Series, Thiago Ribas Da Costa (BRA) was back on the podium again. The Brazilian guided Kinky Van ‘T Heike ( Epleaser Van T Heike x Grandeur) towards bronze honors after a clean scorecard and a final time of 37.64 seconds.
