A Great Oh d’Eole at Saut Hermes

Oh d’Eole was in great form at the Saut Hermes CSI-5* Grand Prix in Paris. After a very difficult first round where she jumped a clear round along with seven other combinations, the jump-off proved to be equally challenging with just 3 clears from the first seven combinations to attempt the course. As the last rider to qualify in the jump-off, Gregory and Oh d’Eole were the last pair to tackle the course. Gregory knew what he would have to do to win the GP. Unfortunately, a cheap rail at the second to last fence kept the pair from jumping a clear round but, thanks to his exceptional time (the fastest of the four-faulters), Gregory still earned a beautiful 4th place.
