RieslingGrerMonsGregory Wathelet won the Grand Prix in Mons on Riesling du Monselet. Photo by World of Showjumping.As last to go in a nine-rider jump-off, Gregory Wathelet stole the show on home soil at the CSI4* Jumping International Mons – winning the Grand Prix on Riesling du Monselet (Kashmir van Schuttershof x Laeken). Regardless of the pouring rain, the seats were filled with an enthusiastic home crowd who got value for their ticket money as Wathelet went all in to win. Gregory – who by now should be known to everybody after his bridle less performance in Paris this weekend – was cheered on wildly for every stride Riesling du Monselet made, and although the couple had a hairy moment coming very close into the third last vertical everything else went according to plan and they crossed the finish line on a clean sheet and with the fastest time of the day at 43.04 seconds.

cornyThe forecast was for rain today, all day and thunder in the evening... It barely drizzled, so if this is a rainy day in Paris, I don't mind to have more rainy days! It's the 4th of July which is kind of big in America, barbecues and hamburgers, I'm told! To top the day off Germany get France at 6pm in the quarter finals, I am wearing my German team t- shirt just to be clear who I'm supporting, oh putting a target on my back, we'll see...

ParisTrucksA short word about getting to Paris...


Most of the time everything, because of proper planning, runs smoothly but that wasn't to be for our trip this time around. Left home, drove to Holland where I picked up a driver and a present from friends of English chocolate (Cadburys) – all was well...


About an hour later we all heard a clonk sound, I went back to check the horses and could hear something dragging on the ground under the truck... Went back to the front and said calmly that we should pull over at the next safest place. So we pulled in at the next exit on a small parking place, I got out and the batteries from the living had fallen out the bottom of the truck due to a rusty nail on the hinge, that holds them in. I made it all safe and it was smoking a bit, so we found the fire extinguisher put it next to the batteries and got out ropes, lounge lines and chifneys ready to unload in case.
