Sea Coast Forlap 2nd in the GP at CSIO Budapest

After performing well in the Nations Cup, Sea Coast Forlap continued to excel in the GP with a magnificent clear first round, during which only two couples qualified for the jump off in this huge Grand Prix. Jumping off in the 2nd position, Gregory knew that he would have to be clear and fast to beat his compatriot Pieter Devos.  “Forlap lacks a little experience jumping off, mainly in making tight turns, so I knew that I had to gain some time in the last straight line by using his big stride but I found myself a little long and flat to the last big oxer. But, at any rate, it was a fantastic result for us. This horse is wonderful and still far away from reaching his potential…”
