The world number 1, the Swiss Steve Guerdat, wins the CSI 2* Grand Prix of the HUBSIDE JUMPING in Grimaud, in the saddle on Ulysses des Forêts. He is ahead of the Belgian Jérôme Guery, associated with Eldorado Wp Z, and the French Roger-Yves Bost, on Cassius Clay Vdv Z.
“Ulysses des Forêts is a mare that does not lack experience; she was there for that; it was what was planned for her. I preferred to put her in the Grand Prix of 2* rather than in intermediate events of the CSI 5*. She was great; she is a very competitive mare in these events and I always try to take her with me when I have room. She will come back here a few times in Grimaud, that’s for sure! Like I said, it’s good to have young horses on one side but also other more competitive ones to try to win a few events (laughs). It’s the last day of the competition and it’s about my first victory this week at HUBSIDE JUMPING. It’s always nice, especially since my horses jumped well this week but I haven’t always ridden well, so it’s better to finish like this.”
