Gregory chose to skip the CSI-W in Verona in order to prepare and develop a better familiarity with his new horses in a 2* competition.
Eldorado jumped the 1.40m classes with success and, most importantly, he made great strides in understanding Gregory as shown by his reactions. Zippit continued along the same path of progress with a 3rd place Friday in the 1.40m and an unfortunate 4 faults at the last jump in the Grand Prix. Applaus, a 9 year old gelding given to Gregory by Stal Hendrix, made his debut with Gregory in the intermediate division classes of 1.35m with another4th place on Friday. Finally, Talent des Moitiers, a 7 year old Selle Francais stallion, made his debut showing under Gregory and showed many very nice qualities in the 7 year olds with two clear rounds and one fault in the Grand Prix.
