Come back on the Saut Hermès in Paris

Back from Spain for the Saut Hermès  in Paris, Gregory had taken his 2 horses in view of the World Cup final. As a last training, he had decided to put Forlap in the intermediary 1m50 classes where he behaved very well during both outings. Then Corée made her come back since Zurich, after Gregory had decided to give her a few relaxed weeks. After a clear round on Saturday in the 1m50 class, they competed in the difficult GP on Sunday. The course builder had concocted a very hard GP, combining height, width, technicality and above all a very impressive succession of jumps. The result will only confirm these difficulties, and despite a rather generous allowed time, only 3 couples made it to the jump off. Corée, who started in the middle of the proof applied herself and jumped with ease but unfortunately made a small mistake on the penultimate jump, depriving them from the jump off. Gregory however came back on a very positive note from this Paris 5*.
