MonetaHIUBHSThe winners - Luca Maria Moneta and Connery. Photo Satu Pirinen.Friday's biggest class at the Helsinki International UB Horse Show was a tight affair. Out of 46 riders 20 managed to produce clear rounds, and the top four finished within 13 hundreths of a second. The fastest of them was Luca Maria Moneta from Italy with Connery (Cordobes II x Polydor).


"I am very pleased with my horse Connery. He has gotten older and knows his job better. Earlier he was too much in a hurry: if I let him go, he was too excited and not really careful with what he was doing. Now, he finally knows his job and fights for me against the fences. It's nice because I can let him do the job and it is very easy for me," Moneta said after his win.
