Summing up the week at International Jumping of Liege

The weekend was wrapped up full of emotion for Gregory. Indeed, the Jumping of Liege is a very special event. It provides a venue to meet people from the region Gregory is from who have offered him so much encouragement throughout his career. There are many, many fans and loyal supporters, as evidenced in two evening sessions of dedications organized at the LEWB stand. Gregory holds great appreciation for each and every one of his fans and thanks you from the bottom of his heart for your enthusiasm and expressions of support. It was a real pleasure for him to meet you all. 

For this show, Gregory lined up four new recruits, but for Vipreska de la Falize who took a very nice win the first day. Il was also able to count on Zippit who was 4th in the Sunday morning class. In the category of young hroses, Indorado competed in the 6 year old division. In the final, he was qualified for the jump off but Gregory preferred to not participate in order to save his young mount. In the 7 year old division, Chanel jumped very well with 4 faults in the final. For the Grand Prix, it was Eldorado Van’t Vijverhof, previously ridden by the Columbian Daryo Arroyave, who Gregory chose as his mount. The couple had a very nice course with an unfortunate 4 faults in the double. All in all, Gregory was very satisfied with the performances realized by all his new mounts.
